Alleghany High School Students

Hundreds of graduating seniors have been awarded substantial scholarships. The scholarship review committee—comprised of one Alleghany Educational Foundation board member, two Alleghany High School faculty, and two community members—reviews and approves awardees based on merit and need. Each class’s top academic seniors are not only financially honored but are lauded at a dinner and recognition ceremony. Recognition awards and teacher testimonials make this event memorable for students and proud parents alike.

Alleghany Middle School Students

Beginning in 8th grade all students have the opportunity to be assigned a Trojan TRAX mentor. Each student meets with that mentor four times each year and the mentors follow the students through high school graduation.

Mentors meet with students individually to review:

  • Personal and academic goals and progress
  • Course selection
  • Academic performance and behavior
  • Participation in extra-curricular activities
  • SAT/ACT registration
  • College and scholarship research
  • Trojan TRAX Scholarship requirements
  • College application completion
