“It’s Planning Time” 2017-2018

Dear Seniors and Parents:

As the school year is gearing up, the time seems ripe to remind seniors that they should now begin planning for life after high school.  For most of the seniors, college or some kind of education program lies ahead; for others, work, travel, the military, or perhaps a “Gap Year” is planned. Now is the time for students to develop a slate of colleges to which they may wish to apply. Several commercially produced college handbooks offer valuable information.  They include the current editions of: 

 TheCollege Handbook

Insider’sGuide to the Colleges

ComparativeGuide to American Colleges

These and other handbooks are available for purchase at most bookstores.  

Visit the College/Career Information Center (CCIC) and become acquainted with our College/Career Coordinator.  The College/Career Coordinator is there to help students find the materials they need to make wise, informed decisions.  Many students find the computerized college search, Family Connection/Naviance, an especially helpful resource.  If a student needs his/her registration code, please have him/her contact the College/Career Information Coordinator to obtain it.

 

Scholarship Information

 FAFSA On The Web 

Applying for and receiving financial aid is an important part of the college admissions process. If you can’t pay your tuition, you won’t be able to go to your intended college. That’s why it’s important to look at all of your financial aid options, including reading up on scholarship information to find out what you need to do before applying for awards.
