Missouri A+ Scholarship Program
The Missouri A+ Scholarship Program was created as a part of the Outstanding Schools Act of 1993 as an incentive for improving Missouri's high schools. In an effort to improve Camdenton High School, all A+ service opportunities are currently supervised by the Camdenton RIII School District. Students should contact the A+ Coordinator if they would like to pursue A+ endorsed opportunities outside the school district. Below is a breif description of approved A+ Program service opportunities.
Camdenton High School will continue to run a structured after school study hall and tutoring program called Academic Lab. Under the supervision of a teacher, students are given an opportunity to work on academic studies in a quiet environment. Students can get help from a teacher or A+ Program tutors during this time. Students may also do the following: read, study, work on a device, make up assignments after an absence from school, make up quizzes or tests, work on missing assignments that were not completed in class or just haven’t been finished and turned in. At least one teacher will be available for help when needed. The program is located in the high school library, Monday through Thursday, from 3:15-4:15 p.m.
Project PASS is an after school program that primarily serves students who need extra academic support. However, Open Library, enrichment activities and Fantastic Fridays are available to all students. On the main Camdenton RIII District campus, 6 school buildings participate in Project PASS; Dogwood, Hawthorn, Oak Ridge, Camdenton Middle, Camdenton High and the Lake Career and Technical School (LCTC). At LCTC, English Language Learner classes take place daily for students and adults. In separate locations, Osage Beach and Hurricane Deck Elementary Schools each offer the Project PASS programs. Project PASS begins at dismissal time, Monday-Thursday with a snack or dinner being served. All A+ Program Tutors may not eat meals provided by Project PASS. Tutors are asked not to bring any food or drink while serving Project PASS. Project PASS starts around October 1 and tutoring starts approximately 2 weeks after it starts. Project PASS ends at 5:30 p.m.

Before or after school tutoring
Students can tutor other students any time before or after school as long as it is under the supervision of a certified Camdenton RIII District employee. Students may tutor at any of the Camdenton RIII Schools during this time.
Summer academy activities run through the months of June and July and can be credit recovery, remediation or enrichment. There are many opportunities during the summer to mentor and tutor Camdenton students.
A+ Elective Credit (Seniors only)
Senior students may choose to select an A+ Elective Credit class period during their normal school day. Students can help a class in a personal area of interest, experience or expertise. Generally, students that take A+ Elective Credit must be in good credit standing and on track to graduate with their cohort. Students who take A+ Elective Credit need to be aware of the eligibility guidelines for MSHSAA sanctioned activities.
Camdenton High School has opportunities to mentor othe Camdenton students during the school day. Mentoring during the school day is considered a privilege and therefore students must complete an application in order to be considered for the program. Currently, Camdenton High School students can be Freshmen Mentors, Enrichment Tutors and Intervention Tutors. The application and selection process occurs in the spring semester of the previous year.
Camdenton School District has additional opportunites for students to fulfill their tutoring/mentoring hours through various camps or clinics that are supervised by a Camdenton R-III district employee. Students considering such activities are encouraged to participate, however, they are also advised to check with the A+ coordinator for verificaiton of acceptance of these types of activies for meeting requirements of the A+ program.
