06. Will colleges accept a NARHS diploma?

Graduates from our school are afforded the same privileges as any other graduate from any other Maine high school. It bears repeating that our students have gone to every possible type of college and university. We have students at Harvard, at Penn State, at FSU, at local colleges, in technical colleges, virtually everywhere. One NARHS graduate is at Julliard, one of our graduates is a National Merit Scholar, and one of our graduates is at West Point. (Below this short narrative is a list of many of the colleges, universities and schools to which are graduates have been accepted.)

CONSIDER: It is not the NARHS diploma that will get you into college or keep you out of college. YOUR accomplishments will gain you college admissions, or keep you out. The diploma doesn’t apply to college -- the STUDENT applies to college. To that end, we work carefully to “package” each student’s transcript and records, and to make that “package” as formidable as possible to access the goal. Your goal might be college, the job market, an apprenticeship, or a trade occupation. Whatever it is, we will help the student’s specialty stand out in the “package.”

               DENIAL of ADMISSION
Students are denied admission to schools for hundreds of reasons.  Please do not assume it was your personal program or your choice of high school as the only reason for denial.  

Having a high school diploma from ANY HIGH  SCHOOL does not guarantee a school's graduate will be granted admission to any college.  There are many reasons students are not admitted -- some as simple as a college's poor experience with the student's interview, essay, finances, etc.  Colleges are using other sources for information, not just the student's academic records.


We are discovering that colleges and scholarship committees have other reasons. using other sources for information

__ Criminal record
__ Juvenile record
__ Terminated by a former employer
__ Expelled or Suspended from their school
__ Identity confusion -- perhaps the student has the same name as a delinquent father, or a convicted felon, or runaway teen, or an abducted child, or has the same name as someone on the government's "NO FLY" list?
 __ Does your student have an account on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc.  and could there be anything there that would cause officials to question your student's qualifications or suitability?
__ Could this student's NAME  (not necessarily him, but his NAME) have any other mention in the "public record" in your town or county?

These reasons may never be spoken, but they can play a central role when colleges decide to accept or reject a student.
