By gaining the email lists of high school principals you can communicate the desired caliber of student and knowledge of the applicants you wish to gain. The principals in turn can aid their teachers and advisors on setting educational goals but also programs.
When colleges communicate with high schools, not only should they consider the number of high schools … for example there are over 2200 schools in the state of Georgia, while there are only just over 1500 schools in the state of California. This is interesting since the population of California is 4x greater than the population of Georgia.
By providing your criteria, the principals can improve their students or programs in such a way that in the example of Early College High School in California, they have achieved a 40% statistic of students with an earned GPA of 3.5 or higher. They improved this over a 10-year period. Making it a distinguished school of the state of California and to be noted in the U.S. News and World Report. This would provide an appealing set of applicants for many higher institutions.
Offerings and Courses
Furthermore, they developed extra offerings and courses. If you are a college specializing in the Arts – knowing that this school, or being the one that aided in their addition of an after school program for Theater Arts, including classes for dance and guitar as well. This benefits the principals in developing their curriculum as well as the students that can potentially be candidates and applicants to your college. The principal and counselor will be able to prepare students for your programs.
This particular school added MESA (Math, Engineering, and Science Achievement) course offerings in their current year. They are adding for 2019-2020 an Exploring Computer Science course that is more in line with the technical and personnel skills of current technology demands.
Interestingly they also added a course for Advancement Via Individual Determination. An amazing preparatory class for colleges and universities. This is new for this school in 2018 and therefore, has prepped students as achievers in your programs.
By contacting high school principals and sharing information you can help improve the high school and thus the quality of students coming into your programs. It’s an opportunity to impact the school on your behalf as students graduate and look towards their advanced degrees.
