MESSAGES FROM THE MHS COUNSELING OFFICE
Moberly High School has partnered with NextTier.com to help students plan their futures after high school. The Moberly High School counseling department will use NextTier with students to access information and create personalized task lists to help explore college and career options, navigate the admissions process, and find scholarships and financial aid.
As a student or a parent, you can communicate and collaborate with your others on their post high school journey by using the NextTier platform. You can recommend colleges to your others, and bookmark careers and scholarships for later reference and referral.
The NextTier app is available to download for free on the Apple store, as well as the Google Play store for use with your smartphone and/or tablet. There are no in-app purchases. You can also access NextTier using your personal computer.
Thanks so much!

Opportunities for MHS Students to be College and Career Ready
This past legislative session the Missouri General Assembly made the decision to discontinue funding the ACT test that juniors had been required to take the previous three years. Moberly Public Schools believes that this test is valuable to the success of all students and has agreed to continue to offer the ACT at no cost to all juniors. MPS believes students who have the opportunity to take this test for free will be more college and career ready when they graduate from Moberly High School.
Another advantage to offering this test to students is that it can be administered during the school day where students can feel the most prepared and comfortable. The date of this test will be Tuesday, February 27, 2018. Students who wish to take this free test will need to sign up in the counselor's office.
While this test is optional, all Moberly High School Juniors are encouraged to take this test because this will be the only time that the district will pay for the exam. Students can still continue to take the ACT beyond this specific date, at their own cost. All students who sign up must do so by
December 21, 2017.
If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact Moberly High School.
