PROMOTING THE EXCELLENCE OF THE HISPANIC CULTURE THROUGH ARTS & EDUCATION!
COLLINSVILLE HIGH SCHOOL WORKS WITH THE HISPANIC ARTS COUNCIL OF ST LOUIS TO PLACE LATINO STUDENTS IN COLLEGE!
Collinsville High School is a proud participant in the Universidad Ya (College Now) college readiness program for junior and senior Latino Students. Universidad Ya is an initiative of the Hispanic Arts Council of St. Louis.
The program is lead by Mrs. Virginia Braxs, a Senior Lecturer in Spanish at Washington University in St. Louis.
Students meet four times a year during their lunch/study periods. Mrs. Braxs presents a variety of information to help students understand what is needed for college. Topics range from the importance of your GPA, scholarships, completing the FASFA and applying for college.
This year, students who attended all four sessions were awarded a tablet computer. They were congratulated by CHS Principal David Snider.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you find any of the resources or scholarships links not working, that doesn't mean that that scholarship is not available anymore. It may be that they changed the URL address, so, we urge you to google the name of the organization or scholarship to find the working link. We are not able to keep the hundred of links listed in this website up to date. We do as much as we can but we need you to be proactive. Thanks!
