Millsap High School receives college readiness recognition

MILLSAP – Millsap High School has received the “2012 College Readiness Award” from the Texas ACT Council for increasing the number of students taking the ACT Assessment over the past five years and significantly increasing their level of achievement and college readiness.

The Texas ACT Council is comprised of secondary and post-secondary educators who advise ACT Inc. on the utilization of ACT programs and services in Texas schools and colleges. ACT Inc. is the not-for-profit organization that provides assessment, research, information and program management services in the broad areas of education and workforce development and the publisher of the ACT Assessment.  The ACT Assessment is the college admissions test that is used and accepted by all colleges nationwide and throughout Texas.  In 2012, over 39 percent of Texas graduating high school seniors took the ACT in Texas while the total number of Texas students taking the ACT has increased over 40 percent since 2008.

“The Texas ACT Council wanted to recognize those Texas high schools that have made significant strides in increasing the college and career readiness of their graduates as demonstrated by their ACT score increases over the past five years,” said Karen L. Pennell, assistant vice president and ACT southwest regional manager. “This can only happen as a result of the high school’s faculty and staff efforts and the dedication of Millsap High School students and parents to focus on college and career readiness and raise the level of academic readiness for all students.”

Millsap High School Principal Kayce Haenisch said she is “very proud” of the school’s students and teachers.

“We are excited about the growth our students have made and will continue to make on exams such as the ACT,” she said. “Our focus is to prepare students for college and career in order to help them succeed in the future. We have an excellent school here in Millsap and will continue to strive for success in all areas of our school. I would like to say great job to all of our teachers, students, and parents for the hard work that made this award possible.”
