Seniors who have applied to four year universities must send SAT and/or ACT scores directly from collegeboard.org or act.org. Bolsa Grande can not send SAT/ACT scores to universities. Results can be sent to colleges for free if students make their request between the time of registration and one week after they take the test. After that time, a charge of $11 per score destination may apply. If a student sends SAT scores to CSU mentor (code #3594) all CSU schools will receive SAT scores. If a student sends their ACT score to at least one CSU campus they can use ACT Score Manager (www.csumentor.edu) to release their scores to additional campuses for free. Both SAT and ACT scores may be sent to any one of the UC schools and scores will automatically go to all UC schools.
We are proud to announce, Bolsa Grande High School (BGHS) is the recipient of the California Gold Ribbon Schools Award. The new award is in lieu of the California Distinguished Schools Program and recognizes middle and high schools that have impacted students’ lives by implementing an exemplary program. In 2009, 38% of students at BGHS were eligible to attend a four-year college. To address this disconnect between student’s A-G rates and the disproportionate number of students not being accepted to a 4-year college, BGHS created Senior College Focus. The fundamental core of the program is that every student understand all of their post-secondary options and take an active role in the college application process at the end of their senior year end up at the most competitive educational institution based on their ability to be successful. Through the efforts of teachers and staff, Senior College Focus has increased the number of students meeting A-G to 64% in 2014 with 77% accepted to a four-year college. According to State Superintendent of Public Education Tom Torlakson, “These schools are academically successful, vibrant, and innovative centers of learning and teaching. They provide great examples of the things educators are doing right - embracing rigorous academic standards, providing excellence and creativity in teaching, and creating a positive school climate.” For more information, please read the news release from the California Department of Education.
