HUFS was selected by the Ministry of Education to run its 2022-2024 High School Education Contributing University Support Program (Type I). This year’s project budget amounts to KRW 926 million. Since the program was launched in 2014, HUFS has been chosen to run it for nine years in a row. Throughout the course of the program, HUFS will fulfill its role of ensuring fairness in the nation’s college admissions process, reinforcing high school education, and relieving the burden of college entrance exams for test-taking students.
HUFS’s contributions to enhancing high school education go back even before the launch of the program in 2014, with it joining the nation’s college admissions officer support system in 2009. Since then, it has been at the forefront of fulfilling its responsibility as a higher education institution to ensure fairness in admissions, operating an admissions program based on the existing high school courses, and building a college admissions program for fair and transparent student screening.
By joining this year’s support program, which has been restructured into a three (two + one) year program, HUFS is planning to step up its efforts to secure impartiality in college admissions and sound high school education. Along with its high school visit briefing sessions and teacher meetings that began on May 9, 2022 (Monday), it will offer HUFS application strategy briefings, mock interviews, conferences with teachers, major exploration, CARE services for communities lacking access to information, and other various high school-linked programs until its early decision application deadline. It is also currently engaged in or seeking cooperation with Seoul Nambu District Office of Education, Jeollanamdo Office of Education, and Jeju Office of Education to establish and successfully implement the incoming high school credit system.
