Beloit College Porter Scholar
The Porter Scholar Program is a cooperative effort between Beloit College and Beloit Memorial High School designed to give high school seniors release time during the school day to attend classes at Beloit College.
A Porter Scholar must be in the top 10% of the junior class to be eligible to take tuition free course work at Beloit College. Eligible students will meet the Beloit College Campus Coordinator during March of their junior year.
Interested students must fill out an admission application for Beloit College and return it to their high school counselor by the middle of April. Students will be notified of acceptance into the program by the middle of May of their junior year.
For more information, contact the School Counseling Office at Beloit Memorial High School. Even if applying for the Porter Scholar Program, you still should select a full schedule. If you are admitted, your schedule will be adjusted accordingly. This program is open to seniors only.
Project Lead The Way
Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a pre-engineering program consisting of a series of courses that will provide students with a solid foundation of engineering related skills and knowledge.
This will allow them to enter post-secondary engineering and related programs with advanced standing and, in some cases, transcripted college credits.
During the 2014 – 2015 school year, PLTW course offerings include; Intro to Engineering Design, Principles of Engineering, and Digital Electronics and Computer Science and Software Engineering. Courses will be offered through the Technology and Engineering, Science and Math departments.
School To Work Program
The opportunity to experience hands on education while still in high school can be valuable. The school to work program allows students to work in a career field before making their post-high school decisions.
Upon graduation, students are recognized with a certificate of completion of entry-level skills. The employer knows individuals are coming to them to pursue a career and not just a paycheck.
Teacher Intern Program
Are you interested in working with elementary school age students? Perhaps you wish to pursue a career in teaching. If so, you should consider signing up for the Beloit Memorial High School Intern Program.
The program is offered to seniors who are on track for graduation. It is possible to earn up to one credit. Placement at assigned schools will take place during the third and fourth terms. This program is open to seniors only.
Wisconsin Youth Apprenticeship Program
The curricula define specific competencies students must master through combined classroom and work-based instruction.
Requirements for one and two year programs will vary. Students will be awarded a Certificate of Occupational Proficiency by the Department of Workforce Development (DWD) when they successfully complete their high school diploma requirements and achieve the specific competencies required.
Students will be eligible for advanced standing credits at Blackhawk Technical College, other Wisconsin technical colleges, and state colleges. The Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) courses are a part of this program.
Youth Options Program
The Youth Options Program allows students to take post-secondary courses at a UW Campus, a Wisconsin technical college, or a participating state private college.
Courses chosen in this program are those NOT offered by the local high school. The school board pays tuition if the course is taken for high school credit. It is possible to receive both high school and college credit for courses successfully completed. A completed application is due to your counselor and must be turned in before the enrollment deadline.
The spring deadline date is March 1 for classes taken 1st semester and the fall deadline date is October 1 for classes taken 2nd semester. The student must provide their own transportation if courses are taught off the BMHS campus.
The student will be required to reimburse the school district for tuition and fees if the student drops or fails the course. Please see your school counselor for a brochure, application or more information.
