Pre-Missouri Options

The Pre-Missouri Option program provides juniors at risk of not graduating or dropping out an alternative opportunity to earn a Francis Howell School District diploma. Each student interested in the Pre-Missouri Option program must first be enrolled as a student at Francis Howell Union High School and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The program provides an opportunity for these students to prepare themselves for the Missouri Option Program during their senior year.

Daily Schedule
The hours of the Pre-Missouri Option Program are from 7:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. Monday through Friday.

Please discuss any transportation issues with Pre-Missouri Option staff.


Breakfast is available to Pre-Missouri Option students on a daily basis. Students can utilize accounts and pin numbers to purchase food.     

Graduation & Diploma
Students who complete all components of the Pre-Missouri Option program will then move into the Missouri Option Program as seniors. Upon completion of the Missouri Option Program, they will receive a diploma (not from a specific high school), and will be eligible to participate in the graduation ceremony.     

Student Transcripts

A student’s transcripts will be modified after joining and completing the Pre-Missouri Option program. The student’s previous academic history will be documented in the same way; however, the student’s overall GPA will be replaced with the student’s GED scores upon successful completion of the Missouri Option Program requirements. 

Application process

Students interested in learning more about Francis Howell Union’s Pre-Missouri Option Program should first contact Francis Howell Union High School at 636-851-5121. Students are not enrolled into the Pre-Missouri Option Program until they have first been a student at Francis Howell Union High School and attempted all academic interventions available.
