A+ Program Details
Missouri legislators expanded the A+ Program in 2016 to include non-public high schools.
Students who graduate from an A+ designated high school may qualify for a state-paid financial incentive to attend any public community college or any public career or technical school in Missouri. Some private career and technical schools are also A+ eligible. In addition, an ever-growing number of four-year institutions are offering institutionally funded incentives for students who meet A+ criteria.
