Useful Links

Get2College.org - This website is an invaluable resource for ALL high school students. You should visit it early and often for useful information including calendars that show what you need to do each school year, scholarship opportunities (some of these occur BEFORE your senior year!), ACT workshops, FAFSA workshops,.... and all of their services are free!

ACT - For information about the ACT including registratrion links, upcoming test dates, and online prep

FAFSA - Each senior who is considering attending college needs to fill this out during January of his/her senior year. There will be a workshop held on campus that will assist you and your parents in this task. Most scholarships require your having filled this out before receiving any financial aid.

NCAA Eligibility Center - For student-athletes, you can view the NCAA's eligibility requirements. You will need to be sure you are aware of the GPA requirements and the ACT score you will need for the college you plan to attend.
