GENERAL INFORMATION
á

Advanced Placementá(AP) Courses
www.collegeboard.org
The Advanced Placementá(AP) Program allowsástudents to take college courses while still in high school.á In AP classrooms, the focus is not on memorizing facts and figures. Instead, studentsáengage in intense discussions, solve problems collaboratively, and learn to write clearly and persuasively in preparation for AP exams in May.
AP courses usually require summer homework and are more rigorous and time-consuming than mainstream classes.á Most four-year colleges give students credit and/or advanced placement on the basis of AP Exam scores. By entering college with AP credits,ástudents may be able toámove into upper level courses more quickly, pursue a double-major or study abroad.
If students request an AP course and then change their mind at a later date, availability in regular courses may be limited, so it is important for students to thoroughly consider this before commiting to an AP class.
Information about REV's AP programácanábe found under Wildcat Academics onátheááREVáhomepage.á


AVID
http://www.avid.org/
AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) was founded on the belief that acceleration, academic challenge, and supportáare the basic principles for helping students succeed academically

AVID is designed to increase schoolwide learning and performance.á The mission of AVIDáis to ensure that all students, and most especiallyáthe least served studentsáin the middle capable of completing a college preparatory path, will do the following:
-Succeed in rigorous curriculum
-Enterámainstream activitiesáat school
-Increase their enrollment ináfour-year colleges
-Become educated and responsible participants and leaders in a democratic societyá

Students are enrolled in an AVID elective class, take advanced classes with curriculum and tutorial support, and focus on qualifying for four-year college and university admission.á AVID programs are available at REV andáin many middle school and high schools in California.á Information about REV's AVID program is available under Wildcat Academics on the REV homepage.


Homework Requests
Homework requests can be made for excused absences ifáa studentáwill miss school for 3 or more days.á Assignments can be picked up in the Counseling Center.á Here is howáto make a request:

  1. Phone 909-389-2500 and enter extensioná32120 or email julia_smith@redlands.k12.ca.usá
  2. Provide your name, the name of the student, the reason and the dates ofáthe absences

Allow one full working day for teachers to process requests.á For example, homework requested Monday morning will be ready for pick-up Tuesday after school.áá

Academic RequirementsáFor College Admission(PDF)á
http://www.ucop.edu/a-gGuide/ag/a-g/welcome.html


College Entrance Examsáááááááááááááááááááááá

In order to apply for most 4 year colleges/universitiesástudentsáare required to take an entrance exam such as the SAT or the ACT.á Check witháindividual colleges/universities to find out which exam or exams are accepted as part of the admissions process.


PSAT
The PSAT providesástudents with practice for the SAT Reasoning Test and is given each year in October.ááJuniors who scoreáwell on the PSATámay qualify for the National Merit Scholarship competition.ááá Sophomores may take the PSAT if space allows.á All students will receive feedback onátheir strengths and weaknesses.á Information about the PSAT is available at:á www.collegeboard.org


SAT Reasoning Test and SAT Subject Testsá
www.collegeboard.orgáá The SAT Reasoning Test is taken duringáthe junior or senior year.áIt consists of three sections: critical reading, mathematics, and writing.á Each section is 800 points.

SAT Subject Testsámay be taken at the conclusion ofáthe junior year, the beginning ofáthe senior year, oráafter completion ofáa specificásubject.á These testsáare designed to measure knowledge and application in specific subjects. UC used to require students to submit two SAT Subject Tests for admission, but that requirement wasáeliminated in 2011.áStudents can still choose to submit Subject Testáscores for consideration as part of their application, just as they do now with AP scores.á The Subject Testsámay alsoábe recommended for certain majors.

ACT (American College Test)á
www.actstudent.orgááá Most colleges and universities in the United States accept either the SAT or the ACT for admission.á The ACTáhas four required sections: English, mathematics, reading comprehension and science.á The optional Writing Test measures skills in high school English classes and entry level college composition courses.á

COLLEGE APPLICATIONS AND ELIGIBILITYááááááá
Each year REV counselors meet with students to review their Four Year Plans.áThey talk about graduation requirements and college entrance requirements.áThey help students select classes that will meet these requirements and prepare them for the academic challenges they will face in college.á
á
A counselor visits junior English classes each fall to encourage college-bound students to take the PSAT.áThis test happens once a year in October, and it is the only way students can qualify for National Merit Scholarships.áAdditionally, juniors are encouraged to start visiting college campuses and to take the ACT/SAT in the spring.
á
The SAT Reasoning and Subject Tests are offered several times a year at REV.á Students can registeráon-line at www.collegeboard.org.ááThe ACT is offered at other schools outside of Redlands.áFor more information and locations, check www.actstudent.orgáá
Seniorsáhave a variety of opportunities to receive help with college applications.áStudentsáplanning to go toáa four-year collegeácan attend application workshops for CSU or UC.áThese are held in late September or early October.á Representatives from the universities walk students through the application and answer all questions about the application process.áStudents are then encouraged to work with their parents to complete the on-line applications.áá
á
During the week ofáCST testing, REV seniorsáwho will be attending community college at Crafton or Valley can register, take the placement tests, and meet with a college counselor.ááThis allows students to select classes ahead of those who wait until summer to enroll.
á
The REV Career Centeráassists seniorsáin obtainingáa PIN numberáfor theáFAFSA (the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.)áColleges use the FAFSA information toádetermine financial aid, scholarships, and grants.á Students canásubmit the FAFSA betweenáJanuary and March.ááREV offers an eveningáfinancial aid workshop in early January with a college financial aid officer who answers questions parents may have about financial aid.á
á
Applications for most 4-year colleges are due by November 30.áIf a student needs help understanding the application process, counselors are available to answer questions or help students with the application.
á
Some students may want to participate in athletics in college.In addition to test scores and college applications, they must also register with the NCAA on-line and follow the guidelines for coursework required by that organization.áFor help, students can talk to a counselor, athletic director, or coach.

COMMUNITY COLLEGEáááááááááááááááááááá ááááááááááááááááááááááááá

California Community College Systemá
This is the largest system of higher education in the world serving 2.5 million students on 109 college campuses throughout California.á Community colleges offer a smooth transition to a four-year institution.á The community college offers a quality lower-division academic or vocational college education at value prices for students whoámay still live at home.á

www.cccco.eduáThis is the official web site of the California Community College System.áIt offers links to all of the California Community Colleges.


Transferring to a 4 year institution
Each year thousands of students transfer to four-year institutions from community colleges.á Itáis extremely important for students who are considering a transfer to a four-year institution to work closely with their community college counselor.

www.assist.orgáThis interactive site provides course transfer information for students planning to transfer from a California community college to a UC or CSU.

á
PRIVATE COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIESááááááááá áá
There are hundreds of private colleges and universities from which to choose.á There are seventy-seven independent colleges and universities serving over 230,000 students throughout California alone.á Private colleges and universities are quite diverse in nature, including major research universities, comprehensive universities, small liberal arts colleges, faith based colleges and universities, and specialized colleges.
á
Since theseácolleges do not receive state funding, their "sticker price" is higher than public colleges and universities.á However, these institutions have a variety of financial aid programs availableááThe ability to graduate in four years at a private institution may be greater than at a public institution.
á
Some private institutions, such as the Ivy League Schools, Stanford, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and California Institute of Technology are very selective.á Other universities are less selective in nature.á It is very important to research the individual college web sites for specific admission information.

SCHOLARSHIPSáááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááááá
Scholarship opportunities become available at various times throughout the year.áThey also range over a wide variety of recipients and money amounts.áA counselor is responsible for sorting through the information as it is made available and deciding how to get the information out to students.
á
Some scholarships are mentioned in the bulletin.áIf an application is available, it will be in the counseling office in the grey binder.áREV also hasáa list of scholarships with phone numbers or e-mail addresses which is posted in classrooms and offices for students to see.
á
Sometimes we receive information about scholarships for a specific group of students.áThose students may be called in and given an explanation and application by the counselor.áSome scholarship applicants are to be selected by the school.
á
The Redlands Community Scholarship Foundationáprovided thousands of dollars to students each year through an application process.áThis takes place in January and is open to all seniors.áOne counselor is the liaison between students and the Foundation.ááMore information about RCSF is available at their website:á redlandsscholarships.org
á
Of course, students can also access information about scholarships on the internet as well as through the financial aid offices of the colleges.
á

One caution to all students is that it should not cost any money to apply for scholarships.áThere is no reason to pay anyone to help you find scholarships.

Studentsámay enroll ináRISE for a variety of reasons.á The mission of RISE is to provide an educational alternative for students whose job, family responsibilities, or medical condition prevents them from attending a traditional classroom setting.á The curriculum is aligned with state and district standards,áyet flexible scheduling allowsáRISE to meet the needs of each individual student.á Students must submit 30 or more hours of work product each week in order to make adequate progress toward high school graduation.á RISE applications are available from the student's counselor.á


Orangewood High School

Students transfer to Orangewood High School because they are significantly behind in credits for graduation, and the likelihood of making up those credits while remaining at REV is very small.áOrangewood offersámore individualized curriculum, andástudentsácan earn more than 30 credits per semester through hard work and determination.áClass sizes are smaller so students can receive more help from teachers.áThe school day is adjusted to meet the needs of those students who work, and students who elect to stay longer can take additional classes to make up credits more quickly.
