College & Career

A-G Requirements

The intent of the “a-g” subject requirements is to ensure that students have attained a body of general knowledge that will provide breadth and perspective to new, more advanced study.

College Testing

Testing is a necessary step toward college and is often a requirement to be considered "eligible" for consideration to a four year college/university. Whether it is the PSAT, SAT, ACT, or the UC Writing Exam, students will most likely be testing at some point throughout their high school experience. This page will provide valuable information regarding testing that is often required for college entrance.


PSAT

The PSAT 8/9 and the PSAT/NMSQT are highly relevant to your future success because they focus on the skills and knowledge at the heart of education. They’ll measure:

  • What you learn in high school
  • What you need to succeed in college

If you think the key to a high score is memorizing words and facts you’ll never use in the real world, think again. You don’t have to discover secret tricks or cram the night before. The best way to prepare for the test is to:

  • Take challenging courses
  • Do your homework
  • Prepare for tests and quizzes
  • Ask and answer lots of questions

In short, take charge of your education and learn as much as you can!

The PSAT will be offered at SOAR on October 10, 2018.  Students will be working with their teachers in preparation using the student guides provided below.

PSAT Scores and Information


The world needs more people who can solve problems, communicate clearly, and understand complex relationships. The SAT Suite of Assessments focuses on the skills and knowledge that will help today’s students meet that need.

The tests are designed to:

  • Measure the essential ingredients for college and career readiness and success, as shown by research.
  • Have a stronger connection to classroom learning.
  • Inspire productive practice.

The Requirement

ALL STUDENTS who will enter the University of California as freshmen must demonstrate their command of the English language by fulfilling the Entry Level Writing Requirement (formerly known as Subject A requirement).

Students can meet this requirement by scoring:

  • 30 or better on the ACT, English Language Arts; or
  • 30 or better on the ACT, Combined English/Writing (last administered June 2015); or
  • 680 or better on the College Board SAT Reasoning Test, Writing (last administration January 2016); or
  • 3 or above on either Advanced Placement Examination in English; or
  • 5 or above on an International Baccalaureate Higher Level English A: Literature exam (formerly known as Higher Level English A1 exam); or
  • 6 or above on an International Baccalaureate Standard Level English A: Literature exam (formerly known as Standard Level English A1 exam); or
  • 5 or above on an International Baccalaureate Higher Level English A: Language and Literature exam; or
  • 6 or above on an International Baccalaureate Standard Level English A: Language and Literature exam

The requirement can also be met by earning a grade of C or higher in an acceptable English composition course offered by a college or university.

Analytical Writing Placement Examination

All incoming California students who have not met the Entry Level Writing Requirement by April 1, must take the UC Analytical Writing Placement Examination. The exam will be administered the morning of the second Saturday in May, at testing centers throughout the state.

In early April, students will receive a letter directing them to the test center at which they must take the test.

In mid-June, students can log in to their campus's admission website to check whether or not they have passed the exam. Results of the exam will not affect a student’s admission to the University. Those who do not pass the examination can still satisfy the Entry Level Writing Requirement before enrolling in the university by achieving a satisfactory score on one of the tests listed above or by completing an acceptable college course in English composition with a grade of C or better.

Students who have not satisfied the Entry Level Writing Requirement at the time they enroll in their classes must take a writing course designated by their campus.

John Hopkins Junior Overnight Program

Hopkins will be hosting its 2nd annual Humanities Overnight Program in spring 2019! 

On Monday, March 4–Tuesday, March 5, 2019, we will welcome a small group of high school juniors with an expressed interest in the humanities to our undergraduate Homewood campus in Baltimore, Maryland. This is an incredible opportunity for  top humanities students to spend 24 hours on our campus and meet with current students and faculty. Students accepted to the Humanities Overnight Program are representative of our university values of intellectual freedom and collaborative innovation and would thrive within our academic culture.

This expenses-paid program will include opportunities to learn more about the humanities experience at Hopkins, sit in on classes, meet current professors who are experts in their fields, and attend a college essay writing workshop led by our admissions office and faculty from one of our humanities departments. Participants will stay overnight in on-campus housing. Meals, lodging, and transportation to and from campus will be paid for by the university.

We are looking for:

Strong juniors with an interest in the humanities for this program. Strong candidates are students who are taking a rigorous course load during their junior year (particularly in English, history, or other humanities-focused classes) and are succeeding academically.

If you are interested, contact Mrs. Chainey @ tchainey@avhsd.org for a nomination.

All nominations should be submitted by Monday, December 3, 2018.

Students will be notified of their nomination and can then apply directly to the program. To apply, students will need an unofficial copy of their high school transcript and junior year courses. More information about the program can be found here.

Please note: Space is limited. Students should not make travel plans until their spot in the program is confirmed by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Applicants to the Humanities Overnight Program cannot be considered without a nomination.

Why the humanities at Hopkins
As the nation's oldest and top-funded research university, Hopkins provides humanities students the best resources and connections to dive into their academic passions and pursue research of their own design. Our liberal arts focus is designed to cross educational boundaries and teach students how to think, preparing our graduates for success in any field they choose. Here, world-class professors eagerly collaborate with students to break new ground and make a lasting impact on society. Humanities students at Hopkins can take courses in seemingly disparate areas of study to develop scholarly ambitions and discover exciting new interests along the way.

Named in honor of William H. and Elizabeth Gray Danforth, the former Chancellor and First Lady of Washington University from 1971 to 1995, the program is a tribute to their exemplary leadership and service. The program is funded by friends of the Danforths.

Danforth Scholars may receive full- or partial-tuition scholarships. The scholarship is renewed each year for the duration of the degree program, provided the scholar progresses academically and upholds the high standards of character required of scholars.

Beginning with the Class of 2023, the steps to apply for Danforth Scholars Program are:

  • Submit an application for admission.
  • Log in to the WashU Pathway to submit a separate application for the Danforth Scholars Program.
  • Write a brief answer (250 words) to the following question:
    The Danforth Scholars program is looking for students with a strong commitment to community, and demonstrated initiative taking in leadership and service. Please share an example of your personal experience as a leader that would clarify why you would be a good fit for this community of scholars?
  • Write a short essay (250-500 words) on the following topic:
    What matters to you?
  • Submit an additional (third) letter of recommendation from a member of the community who knows the student well.
  • The application and letter of recommendation must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. Central Time on January 2, 2019.

Lamber-Goodnow Injury Law Team Education Scholarships

College Scholarship

Each year, the Lamber-Goodnow Injury Law Team awards two scholarships to innovative and highly creative high school and college students. We seek essay submissions from students who are creative thinkers and problem solvers. Whether you are a star in your local community, an aspiring leader, a tech whiz, an engineer or a creative writer, we want to hear from you.

 

Creative thought, motivation and execution are important to us. Innovation is just as important in the legal process as it is in the rest of life. To make progress and improve upon our circumstances and surroundings, we must be willing to take risks that can influence and drive positive change. We want to support students who buck the trend, think outside of the box and deliver on this concept in everyday life and in school.
