Fire Fighting Program


As we begin planning schedules for next year, keep in mind the following information if you are interested in joining the Fire Academy:

Fire Science Parent Information Night

Wednesday, Feb. 5th @ 6:30 PM

NCTC Gainesville – Health Science Center Rm. 2410

Any incoming junior that is even slightly considering the program should attend the meeting. Attendance is mandatory for anyone who will enroll, and they must bring a parent. There is a large amount of information that we must go over and we need to ensure that students and parents are making an informed decision prior to registering.

Flyer is attached below:

ASVAB Is Coming Back To Sanger High School!

You may be asking yourself, "Why should I take the ASVAB?" Or, "If I take the ASVAB, does that mean I have to join the military?

While the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery is an assessment developed by the military, it does NOT mean that you are required to join the military upon taking the exam. The ASVAB is the most widely used multiple-aptitude test battery in the world that measures your strengths, weaknesses, and potential for future success.

The ASVAB will be given to ALL juniors unless they opt OUT. Any sophomore or senior may register to take the ASVAB if they are interested in doing so.

Juniors with last names A - L already sat for the ASVAB on Friday, November 15th. However, if they missed that opportunity and are interested in taking the ASVAB, they may join the Juniors with last names M - Z who will sit for the ASVAB on Friday, January 31st.

Opting out must be completed by students using their school email addresses.

Remember, all juniors will be taking the ASVAB unless they opt-out. See below:

2020-2021 Course Selection Coming Soon!

Counselors will be presenting information and taking course requests for the next school year in the next few weeks. It may seem early, but it takes a long time to collect data, research for and hire new teachers, if needed, and create a master schedule to accommodate all of the requested classes. Because there is a LOT of planning and preparation done on your behalf, please take the time to research your options. Attached is the updated course catalog for the 2020-2021 school year.

Speaking of options, if you are interested in dual credit as part of your schedule for next year, please take a moment to start looking here:

Dual Credit Information Link click here

The next TSI offered will be on Saturday, February 8th in the Lecture Hall. In order to participate in dual credit classes, you must first have qualifying TSI scores to take courses for dual credit. To register, click the link:
