For students who qualify for the Missouri A+ program, Wentworth is now pleased to announce its own version of the scholarship program called “Wentworth-Plus” for traditional community college students.

Students who qualify for the scholarship can now attend any one of Wentworth’s four campuses in Lexington, Cameron, Hermitage and Lamar with virtually no out of pocket costs.

“We are excited to be able to reach out to new students who want a quality education,” said Colonel Tim Casey, Dean of the College at Wentworth. “The Wentworth-Plus Scholarship allows a student to complete the first two years of college at a local institution and at an affordable cost.”

The only qualification is that the community college student must be qualified for the Missouri A+ scholarship program which is annotated on the student’s official high school transcript. “With student loans at an all-time high, and interest rates on those loans projected to skyrocket, this is a great way to start your college degree debt free,” said Lieutenant Colonel Glenn A. Miller, Chief Financial Officer at Wentworth.

Wentworth College serves as a community college for traditional students in Lafayette, Barton, Caldwell, Carroll, Clay, Clinton, Hickory, Jackson, Johnson, Ray and Saline Counties.

Wentworth Military Academy and College is a private co-educational military high school and two-year college. For 9th-12th graders, Wentworth provides an exemplary college-prep education, which builds self-discipline and self-confidence. In college, small class sizes and personal interaction with faculty allows our traditional and military students to achieve success in academics and in life. Wentworth is one of only five military junior colleges in the country to offer a commission as a second lieutenant in the United States Army after just two years of college.

Wentworth is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
