Students Should Take Advanced Computer Apps for Numerous Post-Secondary Opportunities

Advanced Computer Applications is a class offered here at West High, taught by Mrs. Amy Whaley and Dr. Alvin Sanders. In taking this class students are able to graduate with Distinction, earn a Tri-Star Scholar, and earn three hours of credit at Walter State Community College. In order to obtain these goals, students must pass the industry certification exam with a score of 700 or higher. The test can be taken up to two times, and the test covers Microsoft Office Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. To be considered a Tri-Scholar a student must earn a composite score of 19 or higher on the ACT, or an equivalent score on the SAT, students will then earn a capstone industry certificate prompted by the department of education. Lastly if a student is 16, they may test at Walter State to receive dual credit, passing the test allows for three hours of college credit, and if the student passes and pays a $25 fee, the credit becomes transferable.
