    2. The June ACT test has not been cancelled. If you registered for the April test and were unable to take it due to COVID-19, please check your e-mail for instructions on how to register for a later date.

    3. You must be a Roanoke City resident for the last two years of high school to qualify for the CCAP Program.
  4. Brag Sheets:
    1. You can find this on the School Counseling page on the school website. Brag Sheets are used by your teachers and counselors to write your letters of recommendation for colleges and scholarships. This sheet gives you an opportunity to explain who you are, what extracurricular activities you were involved in during high school, and any grade fluctuations that happened on your transcripts. For example, you experience a death in the family or your parents were going through a divorce and your grade point average went from a 3.5 to a 2.9. The brag sheet gives you the opportunity to explain why your grades dropped and it allows the person writing the letter of recommendation to help explain that for you.
