10/31/2017 at 9:30am Apply Kansas: College Application Month program to be held October 31st at Arkansas City High School. As part of Kansas' college access initiative, Arkansas City High School will work with its seniors on October 31, 2017 to complete and submit at least one college application. The goal of the event is to get more students applying to Kansas colleges early in their senior year. During this event, students may apply to any of Kansas' institutions of higher education in which they are interested. Michala Taylor, Senior Counselor for ACHS, expects 160 seniors to participate with the help of volunteers, including teachers, administration, counselors, college and community resources, as well as retired teachers. This initiative is part of the American College Application Campaign (ACAC), a national initiative that is an effort of the American Council on Education (ACE). Kansas joined ACE in 2014. For more information please contact Michala Taylor at 620-307-7110 or email her at email@example.com.
