Students should speak with their teacher(s) directly as the first option of academic improvement. They are best able to help you with specific needs. Teachers are available for 30 minutes before school and 30 minutes after school.
Students and parents should check Skyward frequently to keep up to date on assignments and attendance.
Students should start applying now. Deadlines to receive scholarships for the school of choice close as early as December 1st. Each college application is different. Many schools have a different application for scholarships students must fill out in order to qualify for a scholarship.
Students should apply to all colleges they would like to go to, then after acceptance, they have an option to defer (each college has a simple deferment process which can be completed after acceptance. Deferring allows students to keep any merit scholarships they may receive).
Scholarships are best found through the college websites or on these websites: utahfutures.org, fastweb.com and stepuputah.com. Westlake has a rotating scholarship bulletin board in the office. We post any new scholarships on the board for students to receive information on.
Go to act.org to request your ACT score (some colleges accept the ACT score on the official transcript, please check with individual colleges for requirements). For transcripts, please come into the counseling office and sign the transcript request form. Westlake will send an official transcript to your requested college/s.
