Overview

What is the Rogers Honors Academy?

The Rogers Honors Academy is a new program with the goal to help Rogers Public School students, and their parents, learn about college and career options. Learning about and applying to colleges can be a confusing process. There are many factors to consider and lots of information to read and research. Often young people ask themselves questions such as:

 

  • What do I want to major in?
  • Do I want to go to a large or a small school?
  • Do I want to study in an urban or rural setting?
  • What is the difference between a university and a college?
  • Can I afford to go to college?
  • What scholarships are available for students like me?
  • What is the return on my investment for going to college?
  • How many colleges should I apply to?
  • Should I go to NWACC and then transfer to another school?
  • What criteria should I use to compare schools?

 

These and more questions will guide our work together. We will use many different methods and resources to help each student answer their questions – and move closer to achieving their dreams.
