A+ enrollment is voluntary. Students may participate in the program by completing and returning a signed A+ Participant Agreement to the high school A+ office. After all signatures are obtained by the A+ office, the student will be confirmed as an active A+ student. Upon confirmation into the A+ Program it becomes the responsibility of the student to meet all the requirements of the program to become eligible for the tuition reimbursement upon graduation.
Students may sign up for the A+ Schools Program at any time between grades nine and twelve. Seniors must enroll prior to fourth term of their senior year due to the need to complete 50 hours of required tutoring. Jefferson City High School offers a nine-week course, A+ Tutoring (see course description below), in order to fulfill this requirement.

(A student must have attended an A+ designated school for three consecutive years prior to graduation.)
