Pre-ACT - Attention Sophomore Parents! The Pre-ACT is a practice version of the ACT which all colleges across the country look at for college admissions as well as scholarships. We will be conducting a Pre-ACT test on APRIL 24th @ 1:00 PM. Contact me (Justin.Breske@k12.sd.us) for sign up. Registration deadline is Wednesday, April 17th. Spaces are limited. Cost is $18.00 per student. 


Dual Credit Application Opens April 1st!

Students interested in dual credit (Next year Juniors and Seniors) should meet with Mr. Breske to discuss what courses are available as well as how it can benefit their future education


For any of the six South Dakota Board of Regents universities (BHSU, DSU, NSU, SDSMT, SDSU, or USD), students must be a high school junior or senior. Seniors must rank in the upper half of their class; OR have a GPA of 3.25 or higher; OR score 21 or higher on the ACT. Juniors must rank in the upper third of their class; OR have a GPA of 3.5 or higher; OR score 24 or higher on the ACT.

To enroll in math and English courses, ACT subtest score requirements must be met, or Accuplacer scores may be used.

If students are interested in taking a dual credit course from one of the four South Dakota technical colleges (LATC, MTC, STC, or WDTC) they must meet the specific program enrollment requirements of the course they are taking. The dual credit contact at that institution can answer questions on eligibility.



Senior parents! The FAFSA application is now open! FAFSA is is Free Application for Federal Student Aid. It is often required by many colleges and tech schools to help fund your education. It is generally a good idea to get this completed in December but the new application just got revamped and opened this month. https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa



Senior Students should be working on scholarships throughout the year. Please see the scholarship list I have compiled here: http://tinyurl.com/bdvpzshk
