College and Scholarship Resources

Dawn Haak, College Adviser

College planning choices are some of the most important decisions our high school students will have to make in the coming years. The "where," "when," "how," "why," and "if" are all things that need to be addressed.  I've gathered some links and resources that I have found helpful in answering students' and parents' questions about college, scholarships, pre-college testing, and financial aid.  You can also reference the right sidebar for dates of upcoming tests at our school and college representative visits.

I encourage you to contact me at the high school with any questions about college planning, testing, or scholarships.  I'm here to help!


Scholarships

This list shows scholarships that are currently accepting applications. New listings will be in the daily announcements.  In general, more national scholarships are available starting in the Fall and more local and regional scholarships become available in January-May.  (They do not need as long of a selection time.)  Remember to read all qualifications carefully so you don't waste time on scholarships you are not eligible for!
