Most high school seniors wants to go to college. However, not all of them can pursue a college degree because it costs a fortune to pay for college education. It's not only the tuition
students worry about, but also other needs such as books, housing, clothes and everyday expenses. Because of this, about 70% of American college students rely on scholarships to help
support their needs.

Absenteeism issues plague almost every community in America. It is not a problem facing only urban low income students; it is a problem facing middle class America - students who plan to go to college but simply are not in school enough to ensure they are prepared and ready to succeed once they get there.
A report from Johns Hopkins University details the severity of the absenteeism problem plaguing America's schools, showing both the
impact of missed days on students' educational outcomes and the implications for policymakers at all levels.
The Mississippi Student Achievement Improvement Act, approved by the Mississippi Senate in 1999, states that standards for high school graduation shall include student "mastery of minimum academic skills as measured by assessments
developed and administered by the State Board of Education".
To meet the intent of this legislation, four subjects area tests were developed: Algebra I, Biology I, U.S. History, and English II with a writing component. Students earning a high school diploma must pass all four subject area tests to meet graduation requirements.
