College & Career

Senior Application Process:

Federal Financial Aid/CSS Profile: Students can begin to fill out the FAFSA beginning October 1 or their senior year. You must create an FSA ID before you can begin the FAFSA. One parent also must create a FSA ID in order to add their information to the student FAFSA Application. The CSS Profile is a financial aid application required by some schools. some

Scholarship Search Engines: These search engines can be used to help students find scholarships across the country. We also list regional scholarships on Naviance and email students when the list has been updated.

NWR Local Scholarship Program: Local organizations award scholarships to North Warren Seniors each year. The information is presented to seniors in early February and applications are due in early March.

College Visits/Open Houses: Colleges that come to visit NWR are emailed out to students. We have two college fairs every fall and one in the Spring at Blair Academy (NWR students are invited to attend). College open houses and student tour information can be found on each college's admission page.

Career/Technical School/Apprenticeship: Students not wishing to go to a 2 or 4 year school may consider a Career/Technical School or an Apprenticeship. These options allow a student more hands on learning, though classroom learning is still typically required.

Military Academies/Enlistment: Applying to any of our country's Military Academies is a very specific process. Students should start the process in their Junior year and be well aware of what is required of them to apply to an Academy. Most require a congressional nomination, medical history, physical fitness test, extremely high academic standing and test scores.
