A+ Program

What is the A+ Scholarship Program?
Graduates of Sullivan High School can qualify for a state-paid financial incentive to attend any public community college or career/technical school in Missouri through the A+ Scholarship Program. A+ students may also apply to receive A+ scholarships from various Missouri 4-year colleges (see Counseling Office for more details).  

Sullivan School District received designation as an A+ School from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in 2000. With the A+ Scholarship Program, students have more opportunities to explore various career options and start preparing for future workplace experiences.
