WKHS will be hosting a Career Fair on Friday, April 24th from 7:30 - 9:15am. We need professionals from all different career fields to help by sharing information with our students during the career fair! You are invited to attend and interact with students about your profession. During high school, students explore many options for their future. Most students do not understand how different programs or majors might lead to specific careers and what those careers involve. Your presence will help students learn more about your career field as well as areas related to your field. If you are willing to help, please complete the Career Fair Survey.
ZAPS Learning Company has partnered with Worthington Kilbourne High School to offer an ACT Prep Seminar.
The three-day seminar will be held at Worthington Kilbourne High School on the mornings of March 16th, 17th, and 18th from 7:45am to 9:30am each day during the OGT late start time.
The seminar fee is $79.99. Included in the seminar cost are 24 practice tests and a comprehensive ZAPS ACT Study Guide.
To take advantage of this opportunity, students may enroll online at http://register.doorwaytocollege.com and pay by check or credit card. You may also call toll-free 877-927-8378 to enroll.
Please bring 2 pencils and a calculator with you to the seminar.
Enrollment in the ZAPS ACT Prep Seminar is limited.
(Please note that the ZAPS website will list this as a 2 day course, but the fine print does indicate that the course will meet all 3 days. This is a special course that they have created for WKHS students and their standard website format does not easily display it as a 3 day course.)
What is it?
College Credit Plus allows students in grades 7 - 12 to take courses and earn both high school and college credit. The grades and credits earned appear on both the student's high school and college transcripts. Students can earn up to 30 college credits per year. (Maximum of 120 credit hours.)
Where can students take courses?
Eligible students can take courses at the high school taught by a high school teacher, at the high school taught by a college instructor, or at the college (online or live). Students may choose to take courses in any combination of formats.
What does it cost?
There is no cost for the student to participate in College Credit Plus when the student is enrolled in a public college or university. The high school and college share the cost for the course(s). Students choosing to enroll in a participating private college or university might incur costs.
All students interested in participating in College Credit Plus (CC+) must attend an information counseling session addressing the opportunities available through CC+ including the possible consequences and benefits of participation.
Any students interested in participating in CC+ who did not attend the information night hosted at WKHS in February still have several options:
- The College Credit Plus Information night hosted at WKHS on Monday, February 9th was recorded. Students and parents can watch the video in it's entirety and sign off to verify that they have watched the complete session and understand all of the components designated on the intent to participate form.
- Attend a Joint College Credit Plus Information session sponsored by OSU and CSCC. There is a meeting on March 17, 2015 from 6:30-8:00pm at the Columbus State Community College Workforce Development Center Ballroom. RSVP online at www.scarletandgray.osu.edu and enter the access code: ACINF15
- Students and parents can arrange to meet individually with the student's counselor to review all of the required components to fulfill the requirement.

I want to participate in College Credit Plus - what do I do next?

- After indicating intent to participate to the school district, students must apply for acceptance at the college/ university of their choice.
- Upon acceptance to the college, students will take the COMPASS test at the high school (if necessary). The counselors will arrange for these placement tests to be administered in the spring.
