CLASS NEWS

Senior 2018 
 
 
SENIORS,  don't miss out on important events or deadlines!
 
Most financial aid is awarded through this program and is based on financial need and information contained on your income tax return.  A federal formula is then used to determine your Expected Family Contribution (EFC).  The difference between the cost of college and the EFC becomes your “financial need”.  Because school costs vary, you may qualify for different amounts of aid at different schools.  Do not let the cost of a school deter you from applying. 
**If you are a senior and missed the presentation in your Senior English class or a senior parent who was not able to attend Senior Parent Night, the Senior Parent Presentation is available here:
Financial Aid 2018-19  Seniors and their parents will be able to start submitting the 2018-2019 FAFSA and CSS Profile beginning on October 1, 2017.
 
Start your FAFSA application!
Start your CSS Profile.
 
SAT/ACT College Entrance Exams - Seniors need to be sure that they have taken either the SAT and/or the ACT with Writing by December in order to have their scores included for their college applications.

Hey JUNIORS! You're almost there......There are lots of things happening for you this year!  Remember, everything counts!  Study hard to get the best grades that you can!  The initial GPA and class rank placed on every college and career school application is the sum of the first three years in high school.  It is updated throughout your senior year.  Colleges consider your curriculum, grades, rank, test scores and activities—including your senior mid-year rank and final transcript which is mailed after graduation.  Junior meetings will begin in October.  If you have any questions or concerns at any time, please come down to the Counseling Center to make an appointment or email your counselor.  We look forward to working with you to discuss your current progress and future goals!

Start/continue your college search - This includes attending college fairs and college financial aid sessions. Start to think about visiting some college campuses to see which ones suit you.
