Testing Information for College Bound Students
College Bound students are required to take the ACT or SAT for college admission. Schools in the Midwest prefer the ACT. Go to the following website to register for the test, and to access registration and testing dates.
ACT: Students typically take more then once, and predictably, score better the second time they test. Test preparation materials are available through the Guidance Office, and UW-Sheboygan provides a ACT preparation program for approximately $70.
CAPP Registration Info
As the school year comes to a close and we begin preparations for next year, I want to pass on information regarding the CAPP (Cooperative Academic Partnership Program) registration process for students who have elected to enroll in a CAPP course for the 2022-23 school year and wish to pay for and receive college credit for their work (Please disregard this message if your student is not planning to take a CAPP course or does not plan to pursue college credit).
Howards Grove High School offers students the opportunity to pursue CAPP credit in the following courses through either UW-Oshkosh or Lakeland:
- Statistics & Probabilities
- Advanced Biology
- Spanish 5
In addition, students are able to take these CAPP (CCIHS) classes through UW-Green Bay:
Registering and paying for college credit for these courses means that your student will leave high school with the course listed on a college transcript. Enrolling in CAPP courses is a convenient and affordable way for high school students to earn concurrent high school and college credits.
With this link https://hgsdk12wius-my.sharepoint.com/:b:/g/personal/mlorenz_hgsd_k12_wi_us/EX-NHBVl_fhFnJ2qjNxJDgoB0xtYsKTbiv-pEPOMUSZumQ?e=fbVf55 you will find step-by-step instructions for beginning the registration process at all three schools the district offers CAPP credit through should you and your student wish to pursue this option. It is up to the student/parent which school they wish to receive credit at – or you and your student may choose not to pursue credit at all. There are some steps required to be completed now and over the summer, which is why information is being sent at this time. All students who registered for these courses attended a meeting today that outlined the CAPP registration process so they are aware of what steps they must take before school is out and over the summer months. The final registration components will take place in the actual CAPP class(es) after school begins next Fall.
The most important ‘To Do’ item to be aware of, is if the student is planning to take and pay for any math CAPP credit through UW-Oshkosh. This school requires a math placement test. We will hold placement testing at the high school on Wednesday, June 8th at Noon (during final exam make-up times). PRIOR TO TESTING: Students must have completed their application online for UW-Oshkosh. We are asking students to complete the application by June 2nd, and then email Mrs. E Hill (firstname.lastname@example.org) once they have submitted the application. Without an application on file, students will be unable to test at this time. Please be aware that this is a student’s ONLY opportunity to complete these steps with the school’s assistance. If students do not take the placement at school on 6/8, it will be up to the student/parent to complete this process over the summer. There is no cost for the initial application or placement test.
Deadlines for CAPP registration are VERY important. Please follow the timeline dates given on the attached document very carefully. Once these deadlines have passed, students are unable to go back and sign up for the credit at these schools they may be hoping for.

Hope you all have an enjoyable summer!
