Post Secondary/ Paying for College

  • College can be expensive.  With planning and hard work, you can make it affordable. One of the first things you need to do as a senior is to fill out the FAFSA.  
  • Juniors should also begin looking at ways to pay for college. Scholarship opportunities are not limited to seniors, and preparing for senior scholarships should start your junior year.
  • Online searches can bring a wealth of scholarship information from outside sources.
  • Other scholarship opportunities can come from the college within the university itself. Explore what they have to offer and apply. 
  • Have your resume finished early, and use the tools the school has given you to prepare for scholarships. 
  • You may need up to 3 references.  Ask at least 3 weeks before you need the reference to give them time to prepare.
  • Don't put off sending your applications. Deadlines are deadlines, so play it safe: prepare and be early.


The presentation below has information on college visits, financial aid, scholarships, and individual plans of study.  Please reach out to your grade level counselor with any questions.
