What is the A+ Schools Program?
The A+ Schools Program is a school improvement initiative established by the Outstanding Schools Act of 1993. The key goal of A+ schools is to assure that all students, when they graduate, are well-prepared to pursue advanced education, employment, or both.

The A+ Schools Program at Rolla High School provides an excellent opportunity for students to earn financial incentives at any Missouri public community college, junior college, or vocational school.
