Every college-bound senior MUST complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). To begin your FAFSA, click here. The application is FREE so if you are on a site that asks you to pay a fee, you are in the wrong place!!
Parents who have already completed it once for an older child will use their same FSA ID, etc but the senior will need to set up his/her own identifying information.
For helpful hints, including what is needed when you sit down to complete the FAFSA, click here.
There are literally millions of scholarships available in the United States, but I have tried to narrow the field down to those that our students stand the best chance at receiving. Please search on your own. Don't forget to ask your parents about any opportunities available through their workplace.
To have a transcript sent to a college or scholarship foundation, please fill out a transcript request form. These may be found outside my office or by clicking here. If I am not in my office, slide the completed form under my door. Make sure the form has these three important pieces of information: your name, high ACT score, college where you want the trancript sent.
This page is being updated weekly. Some application links are for the 2020 application. As 2021 applications are made available, they will be posted here. If the deadline is before August 2020, that is for the 2020 seniors. If it is after August 2020, it is the new deadline for the Class of 2021.
