Tennessee Early Post Secondary Opportunity (EPSO) Week October 22-26
Early Post Secondary Opportunities (EPSOs) allow students to "bank" postsecondary credit/clock hours while still in high school. Types of EPSOs at West High include Industry Certifications, Statewide Dual Credit, Local Dual Credit, Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment, NCRC/WorkKeys, and JROTC. During EPSO Week October 22-26, we will focus on one or two specific EPSOs each day so that students have the chance to learn about the dozens of opportunities they have at West High to earn EPSOs. Stay tuned and follow us on social media for more information!

College Open House Dates
College visits can be extremely helpful as a student is making important decisions about to which schools he/she will apply and eventually about to which school he/she will eventually commit to attending. College visits and open house events often give students opportunities to learn about the application process, available financial aid and scholarships, housing options, and academic programs/majors. Students will generally be offered a tour of campus which includes dorms, dining and recreation facilities, student centers, and academic buildings. Setting foot on a college campus and experiencing some of the same things experienced by the college's students can help high school students decide if the school is a good "fit". Click the links below to register on-line for upcoming events. If these dates do not work, students may check college websites for other visit opportunities.
