The Colorado Council Day/Night Fair Committee is excited to announce that we will be hosting a Virtual College Fair Week for ALL of the Colorado students this Fall in place of our in-person fairs. Please save the week of October 5th-9th, for the Colorado Council Virtual College Fair Week. The Virtual College Fair Week will be FREE to students and their families. We are hoping by offering the Virtual Fair for one week, that students and families from across the state will have time to participate in the fair, when it is convenient for them. This is also the week before Colorado Free Application Day on October 13th, so we hope this will be a good lead up to that day.
So far we have 61 colleges and universities registered including 21 in state institutions. There will be four features to this event which include specific live chat times with colleges, individual college information sessions, panel presentation sessions with at least 3 institutions, and a virtual fair booth students can visit at any time for information.Watch Video
We are excited to announce we will be raffling off 5 separate $500 scholarships for students who register to attend our virtual fair. We hope this will help you encourage students to attend! Students can begin registering now Here
Sand Creek High School Counseling
Academic Lettering CriteriaAt Sand Creek High School academic excellence is rewarded with an academic letter. Receiving an academic letter is a three-step process. The following are the requirements for receiving an academic letter.
- GPA of 3.500. A student must receive a 3.5000 GPA or better in a semester to qualify for a certificate.
- All levels receive a certificate.
- Upon receiving the third level an academic letter is awarded.
- Each additional level earns a bar.
- Students will be eligible to receive recognition for their achievements at a previous high school after the semester in which they first qualify for an academic award at Sand Creek High School.
- Upon receipt of official high school transcripts, counselors will determine the level at which the entering student should be honored.
District 49's school counselors are here to support students and families throughout the educational process. Counselors are an integral part of academic achievement through addressing the student as a whole person with various supports in all areas.
