Archuleta Scholarships-In-Escrow is a group of parents and other community member who have joined to help Pagosa Springs students further their education with scholarship money earned through grades.
The goals of Archuleta Scholarships-In-Escrow include a higher graduation rate from Pagosa Springs High School and a greater number of graduates who attend post-secondary schools. This program rewards students for success in school as they earn money for term grades of “A” and “B” in mathematics, computer science, select business courses, science, social studies, English, and foreign language classes taken at Pagosa Springs High School. Students have up to five years after graduating from Pagosa Springs High School to use the money in their account towards college tuition. Students earn $40 for each “A” and $20 for each “B” they receive in a core class.
