  • What are the expectations for applying to colleges at this time during Covid-19 ?

    Posted by:

    Many college admissions officials are reviewing applications without the benefit of standardized test scores such as SAT/ACT, as well as missing data from the Spring 2020 semester because of limitations from online learning. As a result, what is available to them will be even more significant to the acceptance process such as college essays, transcripts that indicate academic rigor as well as previous AP scores, and extracurricular activities. 

    For example, the University of Houston has gone test-optional for admission with or without a test score for prospective applicants for next year's high school graduates. UH indicates that applicants will not be disadvantaged by applying without a test score.

    It is vital that you review policy admissions requirements on the college websites you are interested in, as soon as possible.

  • How do I sign up for a college admissions test during COVID-19 ?

    Posted by:

    As a senior, it is strongly recommended that you sign up to take a college assessment even if it is optional for certain colleges in their application. Because time is limited the following testing information can help you to be informed during Covid-19.

    The College Board is providing weekend SAT or SAT Subject Test administrations every month through the end of the calendar year, beginning in August. This includes a new SAT administration on September 26, and the previously scheduled tests on August 29, October 3, November 7 (domestic SAT, international Subject Tests), and December 5. We'll also add a test date in January 2021 if there is a demand for it. Please note that as the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to evolve, we will continue to monitor the situation and will let you know if circumstances change closer to the test dates.

    Angleton High School is having a school day testing for SAT on September 23, 2020.

    CDC recommendations are required for testing for SAT testing and CDC requirements.

    TSI Testing is currently being offered through Brazosport College remotely via Examity and Zoom. For more information refer to the following website: Brazosport Assessment Center.

    ACT is currently accepting application requests to take ACT and including provisions for CDC accommodations and Covid-19 updates.  ACT Testing Amid COVID-19.

    You have several options to choose from that can culminate your interests, career goals, costs, and requirements.

    Using your Google login you can search for colleges through your individual Naviance account. Remember to use Clever to locate the Naviance tile that will link you directly to your account. From there you can search for colleges by going to the top drop-down link under Colleges and use the tools such as:

    - Find Your Fit

    - Research Colleges

    - Colleges you are thinking about

    - Or take the College SuperMatch@  Assessment under your College Profile tab at the bottom of your homepage.

    Another option to research colleges is to use the CollegeBoard website to create an account to learn about taking SAT, AP and as well as scholarships and college searches.

  • What type of essay prompts are required when applying to colleges?

    Posted by:

    The following prompts are the new essay choices from 

    ApplyTexas :

    Essay A: Tell us your story. What unique opportunities or challenges have you experienced throughout your high school career that have shaped who you are today? 

    Essay B: Most students have an identity, an interest, or a talent that defines them in an essential way. Tell us about yourself. Essay C: You’ve got a ticket in your hand – Where will you go? What will you do? What will happen when you get there?

    Common APP:

    1. Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, please share your story.
    2. The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can be fundamental to later success. Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, or failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?
    3. Reflect on a time when you questioned or challenged a belief or idea. What prompted your thinking? What was the outcome?
    4. Describe a problem you’ve solved or a problem you’d like to solve. It can be an intellectual challenge, a research query, an ethical dilemma — anything of personal importance, no matter the scale. Explain its significance to you and what steps you took or could be taken to identify a solution.
    5. Discuss an accomplishment, event, or realization that sparked a period of personal growth and a new understanding of yourself or others.
    6. Describe a topic, idea, or concept you find so engaging it makes you lose all track of time. Why does it captivate you? What or who do you turn to when you want to learn more?

  • Do I need a letter of recommendation ?

    Posted by:

    In many instances, you will need one or more letters of recommendation. Using the Common Application, it is necessary to have a counselor and one or more teacher letters of recommendation, however ApplyTexas does not accept letters of recommendation, therefore it is necessary to send directly to the college or university to which you are applying.

  • What is FAFSA and why do I have to apply for it?

    Posted by:

    FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid that students should complete to apply for student aid, even if they don’t think they will qualify for it. As of the 2021-2022 school year, all students will be required to complete and submit either the free application for federal student aid (FAFSA), Texas application for state financial aid (TASFA), or submit a signed opt-out form. 

    October 1 is when senior students should apply for financial aid because the earlier you complete your application the better the chance is to be in line for that aid. The longer you wait to apply, the less funds become available. Below is the link to a helpful video that can assist you in completing the FAFSA application. Tutorial video to complete FAFSA
