Registration

Students applying for admission to Hightower Academy's programs must have a recommendation from  Dawson County Junior High School or Dawson County High School unless the student is transferring from another alternative/credit recovery program.  All students and their parent/guardian entering a Hightower Academy program must participate in a mandatory orientation meeting before attending any classes.  Orientation meetings are held at designated times throughout the school year as indicated on the school calendar.

If a student is transferring from another county, the parent/guardian must make an appointment with Ms. Lisa Miller to complete the registration materials.  Students will complete surveys and tests as needed at this time.  Please allow several hours on this day for the process to be completed.
