Please encourage your student(s) to sign up for the Pre-ACT, or "practice" American College Test. We will be administering this test in the high school auditorium next Wednesday, October 26th, beginning at 7:55 a.m. The test should take approximately 3 1/2 hours. The cost is $12.00 and should be paid to Ms. Patty in our business office.
The ACT is often used for college admissions and scholarship selection, so this opportunity is one that your student should take advantage of. Taking the practice test allows them to be better prepared to take the ACT. We will be offering the ACT here at the high school on February 28, 2017.
If the cost of the test presents a hardship for your family, please email or call your student's counselor; we are happy to help.

1) The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) application opens OCTOBER 1st this year! That means if your student will be attending any post-secondary institutions in 2017, you should fill this out. The closer you can fill it out to Oct. 1st, the better chance you have of getting aid if you qualify. Here is the website: https://fafsa.ed.gov/
2) Even if you think your income level will be too high, many institutions REQUIRE the FAFSA. It never hurts to fill it out, as your circumstances can change.
3) In order to submit the FAFSA, you must first create an "FSA ID." There are no longer pin numbers, so everyone must create an ID this year. Both student and parent need an FSA ID. You can go to fsaid.ed.gov to start the process now.
4) If you have questions or get "stuck" on the FAFSA, feel free to call any local institution's financial aid departments (i.e., SFCC, EWU, Gonzaga, etc.). They should be able to answer general questions even if you don't intend to apply there. You can also call FAFSA directly at 1-800-4FED-AID (1-800-433-3243).
