HERE IS THE 2ND SEMESTER COUNSELOR WORKSHOP SCHEDULE

------------------------------------------------------------------

Please mark your calendar for our upcoming 

College Funding presentation with 

John Pearson, a local Financial Planner on 

March 8th, 7:00-8:30 pm in the Lecture Hall.

This will be a great presentation for all parents who want to hear about some financial options for college planning.  

During the presentation they will cover various methods available to approach the college funding process, rather than the traditional FAFSA tutorial that accompanies most Financial Aid Evenings. 

While it’s important that parents know something of the financial aid process, they will attempt to present more from a financial planning perspective, including information about all facets of paying for college. Areas covered include, current “retail” cost of college, FAFSA vs. CSS profile, need based aid/merit aid, and strategies for paying for the increasing cost of tuition.

SAVE THE DATE!!!

JUNIOR NIGHT for PARENTS & STUDENTS

The School Counseling Department invites you to attend our Junior Night on Wednesday, March 15th.

We will be covering all of the important grade specific information including Counselor Workshop topics, career center offerings, standardized testing overview, Naviance and college matching, course selection process, college essay, financial aid, the college application process and more!

Small group breakout sessions with your counselor will also be built in.

The presentation will begin in the Lecture Hall and will run from 5:00-6:00 pm.

We hope to see you all there!
