About Our Office
We know that parents and students want the latest information available concerning awards, scholarships and financial aid for colleges and careers. We will make that information available through this web page to prepare our students for college and careers. The student has an important role in the college process and should do much of the work in selecting the college and/or career of choice and navigating the admissions process with your help and our assistance.
An important part in paying for college are scholarships. Students should apply to as many scholarships as possible for free and may recieve thousands of dollars toward their college education. Some scholarships are on a national level however many are small locally based organizations. Requirements for scholarships vary as well as the amount that could be recieved, but even smaller amounts can add up and go a long way. Scholarships can be awarded according to merit, a written essay, or due to an affiliation with an organization such as the Masonic Scholarship.

SAT & PSAT Information
The SAT is a standardized test that colleges use to evaluate applicants' college preparedness. Over two million students take the SAT each year. It is designed to measure a student's ability to understand and process elements in three subjects: reading, writing, and math.
SAT scores are both based on an objective score and the student's performance relative to other test-takers, and have proven to be an indicator of collegiate success.
Most universities in the United States require scores from the SAT or ACT, so it's important to take one of these standardized tests.
Our school offers the PSAT for free, which is a test that gives students a taste of what taking the SAT will be like.
