College Events and Announcements
Thank you for your continued support as the Class of 2020 continues their way to finishing their senior year and coming up with post high school plans.
Many colleges, universities and scholarships from organizations require students to have completed the FAFSA in order to be eligible. Merit based scholarships are not determined by financial need but by academic excellence. Many students lose out on opportunities such as these because they did not complete the FAFSA. The final decision on what to accept from the Federal Government and college is up to your student and family. Please look over the financial aid package from the colleges very carefully. And finally, please be cautious of any organization or individual that approaches you with the promise of finding any additional monies, loan forgiveness, scholarships, or helping you find colleges especially if they charge a fee. Many of the paid services they offer can be done or found for free. Please do not hesitate to contact our College and Career Office at 305-0556 if you have any questions or visit the FAFSA website regarding this topic: https://studentaid.ed.
