Home Schooling through the High School Years
Our Student Affairs committee has collected some useful information for college bound high school students. The following are not requirements of enrolled WHCT students but only serve as resource of information.
The PSAT can be taken in the 10th and 11th grades. The scores of 11th grade students are used to determine eligibility for the National Merit Scholars program. If the test is taken in the 10th grade, it is considered a practice exam. The test can be taken at any public high school in your school district. More information is at the website above.

Attention all students graduating in 2019! The application will open August 1, 2018 for the Tennessee Promise program that lets seniors apply for two years of free tuition at a community college or technical college in Tennessee. Refer to the website for instructions on the application process, as the applications are due November 1, 2018.
From the TN Promise website:
Seniors may apply for the Tennessee Promise scholarship, which will provide two years of tuition-free attendance at a community or technical college in Tennessee. Tennessee Promise is both a scholarship and mentoring program focused on increasing the number of students that attend college in our state. It provides students a last-dollar scholarship, meaning the scholarship will cover tuition and fees not covered by the Pell grant, the HOPE scholarship, or state student assistance funds. Students may use the scholarship at any of the state’s 13 community colleges, 27 colleges of applied technology, or other eligible institution offering an associate’s degree program.
