    Hello, potential spring 2022 Dual Enrollment Students,
     
    This is an effort to finalize your DE (dual enrollment) applications for the 2nd semester/spring 2022 semester. For those who have been serious and followed the application steps previously outlined, you should at this point have already completed, or are in the process of doing these final four items. 
    1. You should research which college courses that you're interested in taking for the spring semester. So please go to: https://www.gafutures.org/checs/dualenrollment/DECourseDirectory and go to the drop-down menu to select the correct college and subject category.
    2. Next, you are to connect with your assigned Midtown counselor by providing her/him with your list of selected course(s), as your counselor will need to verify and upload your desired courses to your GA Futures funding application. The deadline to do this for GA State was Friday, October 22, and for all other colleges, it was Friday, October 29. 
      • Since these two dates have passed, you must definitely connect with your Midtown counselor ASAP if you're still attempting to participate in DE for next semester. 
    1. Then you will need to connect with your DE college and participate in their registration and/or orientation process so that you can register for class(es). 
    2. Finally, you are to submit an official copy of your DE college schedule to your assigned Midtown counselor. This schedule should be in PDF format or a document directly from the college that contains your DE college student ID number and your full name. You can email your schedule to us or simply upload it via this link: https://forms.gle/mXD82PdgvzykJR3g9
    Next below is information on the sessions that'll be held for all those who are applying to ATC (Atlanta Technical College) for the spring 2022 semester. These sessions are designed to help you with the following. 

     

    1.) Submitting your Atlanta Technical College admission application               

    2.) Submitting your funding application of Georgia Futures

    3.) Submitting your FERPA Agreement Form

    Hello Seniors c/o 2022,

    We are truly hoping all of you are doing and feeling well. We're officially at the height of the college application season, at least for those who are applying early. Let's chat about a few things.

     

    • Should I wait for my counselor or instructor to write her or his recommendation letter before submitting my application? No, and this is because the deadline that's published is specifically for the student, and if you miss submitting your application due to your waiting for a third-party letter, then you'll be penalized for missing the submission deadline. 
    • Is it better to apply for college early? Not necessarily, as EA (early action or early application) is for students who are satisfied with their current GPA and test scores (when applicable) and therefore are ready to submit their applications during the fall semester of their senior year. RD (regular decision) typically has deadlines in the spring or 2nd semester, thus affording the student additional time to improve their GPA by including the 1st-semester senior year grades to be reflected in the initial admissions process, as well as the submission of a higher test score. Each college/university will communicate its application processes and preferences. 
    • What are colleges looking for? Although there's no monolithic script, however, there's a universal attraction to students who have seemingly found their voice which is represented through the depth and meaningfulness of their extra-curricular activities, and a student who maximized the accelerated curriculum available to them within the context of their school. 
    • How can I apply to college? There are typically four platforms to which you may submit your application - Common App, Coalition, GA Futures, or directly on the college's website. Your college advisers Ms. Makokha and Ms. Mayoralgo are in the CCC (room A230) to provide direct assistance with this. 
    • Should I always request my transcript to be sent to the colleges regardless of which app platform I am using? Yes, please continue to make one request in your Parchment account for each college you are applying to, as this ensures there's no mistake in your transcript arriving at the institution. 
    • I applied to a college in their ED (early decision) program, may I continue to apply to other colleges? Sure, as long as you are not entering another ED situation with another institution. See the 2021-22 College Prep & Admissions drive for definitions of admissions options: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1xiyU3qj8KyYpc2MfUwvF0VDr45WxrQuO?usp=sharing, or you can refer to the 3rd attached document to this email. 
    • I applied early or received an admissions decision early, do I still have to submit my final transcript? Yes, absolutely, as your initial acceptance was conditional which is pending the successful completion of your high school career. Colleges must ascertain that you in fact earned your diploma and that there was no negative trend in your grades during the 2nd semester of senior year. 
    1. Next, the 12th Grade Student & Parent Info Night is Tuesday, Oct 19 at 6pm. It will be a virtual meeting and to register: https://atlantapublicschools-us.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZwtfuyqqzguHddx1rPwNjCNnTuyP-Aje5hX (See 1st attached flyer).
     
    2. The SAT will be administered on Thursday, Oct 28 here at Midtown. Get prepared. Study. Go to: https://www.khanacademy.org/test-prep/sat (See 2nd attached flyer)
     
     
     
     
     

     
     
    Hello Midtown, we hope you are doing and feeling well. This will be our final email notification to the community at large regarding the application process for 2nd semester's dual enrollment. Henceforth, we will send email communication only to the students/parents who signed up via this google document https://forms.gle/CpU2HzzCFAWPgV9w9, as this represents your seriousness about pursuing the program for next semester. 
     
     
    So, again if you are serious about applying for 2nd-semester dual enrollment, you should follow the steps outlined in the original email sent Thursday, Sept 23, and if you scroll down you'll see that email along with the application instructions. But to help reduce time finding that, the app instructions are repasted here. Read and follow them carefully.
     
    Step 1. Everyone, including our returning DE students, should review the 1st document that is attached to this email as it summarizes the important specifications to the DE program, as well as describes the colleges that are most common to Midtown HS and our students.  
     
     
    Step 2. If after reviewing the attached document, and you seek more in-depth information about our state's provision or program that allows high school students to take courses at approved post-secondary institutions, then you may review these three websites.
     
     
    Step 3. Next, only for those who are serious about applying, and this includes returning DE students who are interested only if you're changing colleges, you should make one entry via this link, as doing so will allow us to make subsequent contact with you and assist you during this process. Here's the link: https://forms.gle/CpU2HzzCFAWPgV9w9.  
     
     
     
    Step 4. Carefully review the documents located in this google drive as you will need these documents in the proceeding steps. 
    In this drive or folder, there are 23 PDF documents, which are:
    • 2021-22 Midtown's Dual Enrollment General Information
    • 2021 Participating Dual Enrollment Colleges
    • 2021 Dual Enrollment Changes & Updates as of MAY 2020
    • 2021 USG Colleges Dual Enrollment Admission Requirements
    • 2021-22 Midtown HS Dual Enrollment Agreement **(All students must submit this form immediately)
    • 2021-22 ATC Dual Enrollment Flyer
    • 2021-22 ATC Dual Enrollment Admissions Application Instructions
    • 2021-22 AMSC (Atlanta Metropolitan State College)  Dual Enrollment General Information
    • 2021-22 AMSC (Atlanta Metropolitan State College) Dual Enrollment Admissions Instructions
    • 2021-22 Clayton State Dual Enrollment Application Instructions
    • 2021-22 GSU (Georgia State University) Dual Enrollment Application Instructions
    • 2021-22 KSU (Kennesaw State Univesity) Dual Enrollment Admissions Application Instructions
    • 2021-22 Oglethorpe University Dual Enrollment Application Instructions
    • 2021-22 Parchment Student Guide to Creating Account & Ordering Transcripts
    • 2021-22 APS COVID-19 Waiver
    • 2021-22 Dual Enrollment Information Sessions
    • 2021-22 GSU Academic Calendar
    • 2022 AMSC Academic Calendar
    • 2022 ATC Academic Calendar
    • 2022 Clayton State University Academic Calendar
    • 2022 KSU Academic Calendar
    • 2022 Oglethorpe Univesity Academic Calendar 
    • 2022-23 ACCA Open House Information Sessions
     
    Step 5. All new students to the program must submit one funding application per academic year via your GA Futures account, and your parent must electronically approve your participation by signing the online Participation Agreement that is generated once you appropriately submit your funding application. If you are a returning student but transferring to another college, you must submit a funding application for that new college or add the college to your existing funding application. 
     
    What is a funding application? It is an application that allows you to access the GSFC (Georgia Student Finance Commission) funds so that the full cost of tuition is not absorbed by you or your parent/guardian. So, yes, this is an extremely crucial step. 
     
    Step 6. For the students who are new to the DE program, your next step in the dual enrollment application process is to submit your admissions application directly to the college/university for which you are eligible. Returning DE students who are intending to attend a different college for the 2nd semester, you must submit an admissions application too. Returning DE students to the same college, you may skip this step.
    The instructions on how to apply to our high school's most common colleges and universities are found in the dual enrollment drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ZHfYfNTXU-zqVUEHSXcylL4rjd-TMLfG?usp=sharing
    Once you're in the drive, please locate the PDF document for your college, then follow the students outlined to submit your admissions application. Please ignore the fall semester deadlines that may be written on a few of the forms, as 2nd-semester deadlines will be shared at the presentation on Wednesday, Sept 29. 
     
     
    Step 7. New students must request that their transcript is sent to their college via their Parchment account. This also includes returning DE students who are applying to a new or different college for the 2021-22 school year. 
     
    For instructions on how to set up your Parchment account, please go to the dual enrollment drive and locate PDF document #15 entitled "2021-22 Parchment Student Guide to Creating Account & Ordering Transcripts." So here is the link to that drive again: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ZHfYfNTXU-zqVUEHSXcylL4rjd-TMLfG?usp=sharing
     
     
    Step 8. Yes, you heard right, it appears that for the 2022 spring semester the majority of colleges are re-requiring the submission of an eligible ACT/SAT test score. Please review what the minimum scores are for each school via the 2021-22 Dual Enrollment drive. It's the 4th document within the drive. Here's the link again: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ZHfYfNTXU-zqVUEHSXcylL4rjd-TMLfG?usp=sharing
     
    To access and request your SAT scores, log into your College Board account via https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/scores/sending-scores and request that your highest SAT scores from one test administration be sent to the college. Please note that there is no 'super-scoring' for dual enrollment admissions. 
     
    For your ACT scores, log in to your ACT account via https://www.act.org/content/act/en/products-and-services/the-act/scores/sending-your-scores.html and request that your highest ACT scores from one test administration be sent to the college. Again there is no 'super scoring' for dual enrollment admissions. Sorry. 
     
    Making these requests may incur a $12 fee for the SAT and a $16 fee for the ACT. 
    All new applicants will need to request their scores to be sent to their respective colleges, that's if the institution requires one of these two exams. Some colleges such as ATC (Atlanta Technical College) may accept the Accuplacer or ASSET exam in lieu of the ACT or SAT. Returning DE students who will be applying to a new college will need to do this step too. 
     
     
     
    Step 9. There may be occasions during this process when you will need to provide your Midtown counselor with a document, please upload all such documents via this link: https://forms.gle/mXD82PdgvzykJR3g9
     
    For starters, you will need to submit the 2021-22 Midtown HS Dual Enrollment Agreement, which again you will find in our drive: It's the 5th document within the drive. Here's the link again: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ZHfYfNTXU-zqVUEHSXcylL4rjd-TMLfG?usp=sharing. Other examples of documents that you may eventually submit will be a copy of your official DE college schedule, a textbook agreement, APS COVID-19 Waiver, and/or an advising form as to just list a few. 
     

     
    Step 10. Be sure to continually connect with your assigned Midtown HS counselor along the way as there will need to be discussion around your eligibility, the course(s) you are intending to take while at your DE college, as well as determining the feasibility of having a DE experience fit into your overall Midtown schedule. It is important everyone understands that currently being a high school student, your high school requirements do in fact supersede any college experience.

    Next, be sure that if you are serious about applying for 2nd-semester dual enrollment, that you follow the steps outlined in the original email sent Thursday, Sept 23, and if you scroll down you'll see that email along with the application instructions. But to help you reduce time finding that, we pasted the app instructions here. Read and follow them closely.
     
    Step 1. Everyone, including our returning DE students, should review the 1st document that is attached to this email as it summarizes the important specifications to the DE program, as well as describes the colleges that are most common to Midtown HS and our students.  
     
     
    Step 2. If after reviewing the attached document, and you seek more in-depth information about our state's provision or program that allows high school students to take courses at approved post-secondary institutions, then you may review these three websites.
     
     
    Step 3. Next, only for those who are serious about applying, and this includes returning DE students who are interested only if you're changing colleges, you should make one entry via this link, as doing so will allow us to make subsequent contact with you and assist you during this process. Here's the link: https://forms.gle/CpU2HzzCFAWPgV9w9.  
     
     
     
    Step 4. Carefully review the documents located in this google drive as you will need these documents in the proceeding steps. 
    In this drive or folder, there are 23 PDF documents, which are:
    • 2021-22 Midtown's Dual Enrollment General Information
    • 2021 Participating Dual Enrollment Colleges
    • 2021 Dual Enrollment Changes & Updates as of MAY 2020
    • 2021 USG Colleges Dual Enrollment Admission Requirements
    • 2021-22 Midtown HS Dual Enrollment Agreement **(All students must submit this form immediately)
    • 2021-22 ATC Dual Enrollment Flyer
    • 2021-22 ATC Dual Enrollment Admissions Application Instructions
    • 2021-22 AMSC (Atlanta Metropolitan State College)  Dual Enrollment General Information
    • 2021-22 AMSC (Atlanta Metropolitan State College) Dual Enrollment Admissions Instructions
    • 2021-22 Clayton State Dual Enrollment Application Instructions
    • 2021-22 GSU (Georgia State University) Dual Enrollment Application Instructions
    • 2021-22 KSU (Kennesaw State Univesity) Dual Enrollment Admissions Application Instructions
    • 2021-22 Oglethorpe University Dual Enrollment Application Instructions
    • 2021-22 Parchment Student Guide to Creating Account & Ordering Transcripts
    • 2021-22 APS COVID-19 Waiver
    • 2021-22 Dual Enrollment Information Sessions
    • 2021-22 GSU Academic Calendar
    • 2022 AMSC Academic Calendar
    • 2022 ATC Academic Calendar
    • 2022 Clayton State University Academic Calendar
    • 2022 KSU Academic Calendar
    • 2022 Oglethorpe Univesity Academic Calendar 
    • 2022-23 ACCA Open House Information Sessions
     
    Step 5. All new students to the program must submit one funding application per academic year via your GA Futures account, and your parent must electronically approve your participation by signing the online Participation Agreement that is generated once you appropriately submit your funding application. If you are a returning student but transferring to another college, you must submit a funding application for that new college or add the college to your existing funding application. 
     
    What is a funding application? It is an application that allows you to access the GSFC (Georgia Student Finance Commission) funds so that the full cost of tuition is not absorbed by you or your parent/guardian. So, yes, this is an extremely crucial step. 
     
    Step 6. For the students who are new to the DE program, your next step in the dual enrollment application process is to submit your admissions application directly to the college/university for which you are eligible. Returning DE students who are intending to attend a different college for the 2nd semester, you must submit an admissions application too. Returning DE students to the same college, you may skip this step.
    The instructions on how to apply to our high school's most common colleges and universities are found in the dual enrollment drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ZHfYfNTXU-zqVUEHSXcylL4rjd-TMLfG?usp=sharing
    Once you're in the drive, please locate the PDF document for your college, then follow the students outlined to submit your admissions application. Please ignore the fall semester deadlines that may be written on a few of the forms, as 2nd-semester deadlines will be shared at the presentation on Wednesday, Sept 29. 
     
     
    Step 7. New students must request that their transcript is sent to their college via their Parchment account. This also includes returning DE students who are applying to a new or different college for the 2021-22 school year. 
     
    For instructions on how to set up your Parchment account, please go to the dual enrollment drive and locate PDF document #15 entitled "2021-22 Parchment Student Guide to Creating Account & Ordering Transcripts." So here is the link to that drive again: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ZHfYfNTXU-zqVUEHSXcylL4rjd-TMLfG?usp=sharing
     
     
    Step 8. Yes, you heard right, it appears that for the 2022 spring semester the majority of colleges are re-requiring the submission of an eligible ACT/SAT test score. Please review what the minimum scores are for each school via the 2021-22 Dual Enrollment drive. It's the 4th document within the drive. Here's the link again: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ZHfYfNTXU-zqVUEHSXcylL4rjd-TMLfG?usp=sharing
     
    To access and request your SAT scores, log into your College Board account via https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/scores/sending-scores and request that your highest SAT scores from one test administration be sent to the college. Please note that there is no 'super-scoring' for dual enrollment admissions. 
     
    For your ACT scores, log in to your ACT account via https://www.act.org/content/act/en/products-and-services/the-act/scores/sending-your-scores.html and request that your highest ACT scores from one test administration be sent to the college. Again there is no 'super scoring' for dual enrollment admissions. Sorry. 
     
    Making these requests may incur a $12 fee for the SAT and a $16 fee for the ACT. 
    All new applicants will need to request their scores to be sent to their respective colleges, that's if the institution requires one of these two exams. Some colleges such as ATC (Atlanta Technical College) may accept the Accuplacer or ASSET exam in lieu of the ACT or SAT. Returning DE students who will be applying to a new college will need to do this step too. 
     
     
     
    Step 9. There may be occasions during this process when you will need to provide your Midtown counselor with a document, please upload all such documents via this link: https://forms.gle/mXD82PdgvzykJR3g9
     
    For starters, you will need to submit the 2021-22 Midtown HS Dual Enrollment Agreement, which again you will find in our drive: It's the 5th document within the drive. Here's the link again: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ZHfYfNTXU-zqVUEHSXcylL4rjd-TMLfG?usp=sharing. Other examples of documents that you may eventually submit will be a copy of your official DE college schedule, a textbook agreement, APS COVID-19 Waiver, and/or an advising form as to just list a few. 
     

     
    Step 10. Be sure to continually connect with your assigned Midtown HS counselor along the way as there will need to be discussion around your eligibility, the course(s) you are intending to take while at your DE college, as well as determining the feasibility of having a DE experience fit into your overall Midtown schedule. It is important everyone understands that currently being a high school student, your high school requirements do in fact supersede any college experience.

    Class of 2022 – FREE SAT DAY at Midtown High School

    ·         All students in the Class of 2022 will be able to take a FREE/NO COST SAT during the SCHOOL DAY THURSDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2021.  ISN’T THIS AWESOME??!!!!!

    WHY TAKE THE SAT? 

    ·         The SAT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. ...

    • You may not use a calculator while working on the Reading, Writing and Language, or Math Test—No Calculator portions, and must put the calculator away during these sections of the test.

    We are excited for you this school year and are confident that this will be a challenging but truly worthwhile school year for you.  So do not hesitate to connect with us whenever you should have any questions, etc. 

     
     
    We hope you are enjoying the last remaining days of the summer recess. The AVA (Atlanta Virtual Academy) program will continue to offer courses for students who are enrolled at their home or zoned school. these courses will be taken in their part-time enrollment program whereby the majority if not all of your classes will remain at Midtown HS, and participating students will take one or two courses with AVA in addition to their Midtown courses. 
     
    AVA part-time essentially has two purposes.
    1. If you are interested in getting ahead in your credits whereby you could possibly graduate early, then AVA part-time is your answer. 
    2. If you failed a course or courses from a previous year, and you did not enroll in summer school or you've never re-enrolled in the course(s), then AVA part-time is your answer. 
    To apply, please submit your request via this link: https://bit.ly/AVAHSPTapp
     
    Then when you are on the website:
    • On the first page, you will be asked for standard identifying information such as your email, school network ID number, along with your lunch number. Contact your counselor if you do not know this information. 
    • On the second page is where you will select your course(s). Please note that this is an application for part-time AVA (not full-time) and it allows you to enroll in two types of courses; CR or IC for either the 1st or 2nd-semester portion. (see below for explanation).
      • CR stands for credit recovery which means you previously failed a course and now you need to recover the credit for graduation. 
      • IC stands for a course for initial credit which means this is a new course that you have never taken and now you are seeking to enroll so that you can earn credits to either get ahead or graduate early. 
      • Then where you see an "A" this means the 1st semester's portion, and "B" means the 2nd semester's portion.
    • On the third page, is where you must select your appropriately assigned counselor. See below for the list of Midtown's counselors. Please understand, however, that our previous school's name "Grady" is written next to the counselor's name. Don't be alarmed. 
      • 10-12th graders with last names beginning with the letters A-F, your counselor is Blankenship, Shaketha and her email is sblankenship@atlanta.k12.ga.us
      • 10-12th graders with last names beginning with the letters G-M, your counselor is Young, Lamar and his email is Ljyoung@atlanta.k12.ga.us
      • 10-12th graders with last names beginning with the letters N-Z, your counselor is Falcone, Chelsea and her email is chelsea.falcone@atlanta.k12.ga.us 
      • All 9th graders your counselor is Blevins-Pellechia, Tina and her email is tblevins2@atlanta.k12.ga.us
    Again, please submit your application through this link: https://bit.ly/AVAHSPTapp
    The deadline to apply is August 21 (however you should apply before Wednesday, August 4, and this is because the first day of school is August 5 and you should not want to miss any days of instruction).
