Students do not need to take out lots of student loans and go into debt to be successful in life. There are scholarships available to help cover the cost of tuition/textbooks/fees.
Scholarships are shared with seniors through the Senior Class Google classroom page. I encourage students to check them out regularly.
I strongly recommend parents spend time talking with their student about their future and the path they are willing to take. Whether it's a 2-year college, 4-year college, military, or workforce - it's important to discuss the journey to reach their desired career.
Most colleges and universities offer scholarships. Be sure to check with these institutions for application information.
Scholarships are awarded based on a wide array of criteria: grades, extracurricular activities, volunteer hours, recognitions & awards, financial need, random drawings, career choices - just to name a few. If you have any questions, just ask!
