The St. Vincent High School Advisory Program is a support system for students, in which advisers support the academic, social, and emotional growth of each advisee. For more information click the link below.
A+ Scholarship Program
Missouri Legislature passed that private/parochial schools may now participate in the A+ Scholarship Program. A student that meets the criteria may have their college tuition paid for toward a junior college or technical/trade school. The law goes into effect on August 28, 2016. Our students may not start participating until we become a ‘Designated School.” We will receive information in late September (from DESE and MDHE) on the process of becoming a Designated School. We will keep you informed of the process and exactly when our students may start their tutoring hours. Click the link for more information on A+ Program

We will have over 30 Representatives from Four Year Colleges/Universities, Junior Colleges, Technical Schools, and Military Branches. Students & families from across Southeast Missouri are invited! This is a community event! There will also be a Financial Aid Presentation in the SVHS Library at 6:30 pm. Print a barcode ahead of time to take to the fair. Representatives may scan your barcode for your mailing information. No more filling out postcards at every table! More time to talk to the reps!
How to Register for a Barcode for the College Fair
At college fairs, the reps ask you to fill out postcards so that they may mail you information. Rather than fill out a postcard at every table, you may register for a barcode. Print this barcode and b ring it with you to the college fair. If you are interested in a college, you may have the rep scan your barcode. This will allow you more time for discussion with the representatives. The following link will tell you how to create a barcode:

Playing Sports in College
The NCAA Eligibility Center is the organization within the NCAA that determines the academic eligibility and amateur status for all NCAA DI and DII athletes. It does this by reviewing the student-athlete's academic record, SAT® or ACT scores, and amateur status to ensure conformity with NCAA rules. The NCAA recommends that student-athletes register at the beginning of their junior year in high school, but many students register after their junior year. There is no registration deadline, but students must be cleared by the Eligibility Center before they receive athletic scholarships or compete at a Division I or II institution. There are similar organizations for NAIA and NJCAA. Choose the appropriate site below to register.
