FINANCIAL AID FOR POSTSECONDARY STUDENTS
Academic Competitiveness Grants (ACG) Recognized State Rigorous Secondary School Programs of Study

Participation in a rigorous secondary school program of study may qualify a postsecondary student to receive an ACG, if otherwise eligible.

Effective July 1, 2009, the Secretary no longer recognizes new rigorous secondary school programs of study. Starting with the 2009-2010 award year, designated officials report to the Secretary rigorous secondary school programs of study, including such programs of study in home schools and private schools, that prepare students for college.

Prior to July 1, 2009, the Secretary recognized at least one rigorous secondary school program of study for each state annually. States submitted proposals for recognition or elected to accept rigorous secondary school programs of study pre-recognized by the Secretary. The bulleted pages below provide recognized rigorous secondary school programs of study by year of high school graduation.
