Students will visit https://www.wvact.net/counselor and find the link for their high school. The links are only live from January 25th-February 8th 2023. The links close at 3 pm on February 8, 2023 for high school students. Do not miss your chance to apply.
Our instructors plan to visit each high school after the registration ends to meet interested students. The instructors and students can ask each other questions to help the student decide what program is right for them and if they definitely want to attend our school.
There is also a link on this page for private and home-schooled students. If there are seats available after the high school registration is complete we will offer those to students who are enrolled in private school or home schooled on a first come, first served basis. We can also fill these empty seats with adult students if there are still openings after high school registration is complete.
