Scholarships: Finding and applying for scholarships takes a great deal of time and effort. Students need to start early. Groups and organizations offer numerous scholarships; however, most of the large scholarships are awarded by the colleges themselves. Students should contact the financial aid offices of the college they're considering and ask for information on scholarships. As soon as we get scholarship information in guidance, we will be posting them on our web page and also announcing them daily. You can also come by guidance and look in our scholarship cabinet for information. 

Seniors: It is finally here!  We know that many families have concerns about how they are going to pay for college, and with college costs continuing to rise, everyone is looking for ways to make college more affordable. There is, of course, a great deal of financial aid available. Financial aid is money that is given, earned, or lent to help students pay for their education. Students receive financial aid in the form of grants, scholarships, work-study, and loans. While some financial aid is merit based (scholarships), most financial aid is based on financial need. To receive need-based financial aid, the FAFSA must be submitted after January 1 of a student's senior year.
