STEPS High School Info

Sowela STEPS Information   Bell City has two students participating in the Sowela STEPS program this year.  Students that do participate take all of their classes (both high school and college) on the Sowela campus but remain a Bell City student as far as clubs, officers, Homecoming, Prom and graduation.  There are a couple of days that Calcasieu Parish schools have teacher inservice days but Sowela classes will still continue.  Students need to check with the administration at Sowela for a list of those dates. 

In the spring Sabra Soileau, principal of STEPS, will hold a meeting for all current juniors who may be interested in attending the STEPS program next year.  Students must be college-eligible which means a math ACT score of 19 and an English score of 18 or remedial courses will have to be completed in the event a student gets accepted with the sub-standard scores.  Look for more info regarding STEPS in the early spring.
