Students and ParentsThis site is to help you obtain information on financial aid and scholarship opportunities. Although financial aid is based upon need, students must meet certain academic requirements to be admitted to the institution granting this aid. Scholarships are often awarded on the basis of a combination of GPA, SAT or ACT scores, as well as personal, extracurricular and/or community involvement that have demonstrated unusual initiative or persistence. Being successful in obtaining financial aid and/or scholarships requires the cooperative effort of students, parents, teachers, and counselors.The following suggestions will make the process easier:1. Attend any financial aid workshops offered by the school.2. Check scholarship bulletins posted on the Senior bulletin board and the high school website for current scholarship listings and other opportunities.
3. Sign up for the Remind 101 app - through smartphone or email - to get updated information on available scholarships.4. Check with the Counseling Center often for newly-posted scholarships.
