Moulton High School Counselor's Corner

7th-12th Grade


Moulton High School 

Counselor's Corner


Welcome to the Moulton High School Counselor’s Corner! 

I have had the pleasure of being an elementary school administrator and a middle and high school teacher and counselor. I look forward to bringing my experience to the students and families in Moulton ISD.  I am looking forward to working with you to help you develop to the fullest potential.  I also hope to aid you in preparing for post-secondary endeavors.  Here you will find links for SAT and ACT testing, scholarships and financial aid, and important information about college and career planning.

Graduation plan: class of 2018+


House Bill 5 changed the graduation plans for students entering 9th grade in the 2014-15 school year.  Students are expected to complete credits for a Foundation Program and incorporate additional credits toward at least one endorsement.


The Foundation Program is a base plan consisting of 22 credits.  Students then select from five endorsements: Multidisciplinary Studies, STEM, Business and Industry, Public Service, and Arts and Humanities and complete credits to satisfy individual endorsement criteria.  It is possible for students to graduate with more than one endorsement. Distinguished level of achievement can be attained by completing four years of study in each of the core subjects, in addition to completing requirements for one endorsement.  Further distinctions in the form of performance acknowledgements will be added to the student's final transcript.  Performance acknowledgements include:


  • Score of 3 or above on an AP test
  • Commended Scholar or higher on the PSAT
  • College Readiness Benchmark scores on 2 sections of the PLAN
  • Combined Critical Reading & Math score of 1250 on SAT
  • Composite score of 28 on ACT
  • 12 hours of college credit with a 3.0 or higher 
  • Bilingualism and biliteracy
  • Obtaining certifications or credentials


Additionally, students must pass STAAR End-of-Course (EOC) exams in English 1, English 2, Algebra 1, Biology, and US History.  Exams are taken the year the student is enrolled in the course.  


Planning for College

Apply Texas

Texas Colleges and Universities now require that all applications be completed and submitted in Apply Texas.  Please use the above link to access Apply Texas to begin your application process.  Individual colleges/universities have their own deadline dates for subbmission of applications and scholarships.  Your High School Counselor can assist you with setting up your Apply Texas account and questions you may have regarding the college admission process.  


FINANCIAL AID can be awarded by the government and by the institution of higher learning that you attend.  The amount of financial aid offered is based on need and can come in the form of grants or loans.  The FAFSA (Federal Application for Student Aid) needs to be filled out in January/February of the senior year.  Filling out FAFSA can be confusing; a FAFSA workshop for students and parents will be provided during the spring semester.

The following items will link you to the appropriate information for FASFA.


ACT &SAT: Plan for Success


The ACT and the SAT are college admissions tests required by most colleges.  Most college admissions committees will evaluate your application based on your best single-session score, so don't hesitate to send scores from multiple test days.  For those of you who don't test well, you'll be glad to know that there are colleges that are test-optional ~ you may still need to take an SAT or ACT, but the score is not a critical piece of your application.

ACT ~ register online at www.actstudent.org

Cost is $52.50 (plus Writing).
Fee waivers are available for students who receive Free or Reduced Lunch.  See your counselor for a waiver.
