If your senior has been accepted into a college/university, please let us know the good news by filling out this form!

Filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA is critical in determining how to pay for college by allowing you to find out which types and how much Federal Student Aid you may qualify for.

The FAFSA is quick, FREE, and is mobile-friendly, which means you can now complete and submit your application all on your smartphone. The FAFSA is available online on the Federal Student Aid Website as of October 1st.

ACT Preparation for Juniors

On March 1st, all juniors will take the ACT standardized test at school.  This exam can be reported on college applications, so it is important that your junior takes their time and works their hardest. We are able to offer free ACT practice through USA Test Prep. Please email Ms. Lafferty for your student’s username and password.
