Financial Aid for Parents of Seniors

The FAFSA opened October 1st.!

Parents of Seniors were invited to a workshop on the FAFSA and other financial aid programs on Wednesday, October 5th.


The workshop covered basics on the FAFSA–the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, which is used by colleges to determine a family’s financial need for college. This evening was reserved for the parents of Seniors because the information changes from year to year and their need for information is more urgent. Below you will also find a document with basic cost estimations that may give some useful resources.

Career Exploration

Last week the freshman and sophomore classes spent time on career exploration. They completed and/or reviewed a career cluster survey. They were then given resources to more surveys and sites where they can start exploring careers. The more they know about a career the better chance they have of choosing one they will enjoy. Please ask them about their survey results. If they were absent they can stop by my office to get a copy of the survey and resources.
