Upon entering high school, students should begin exploring possibilities and requirements.  There are many scholarships available to graduating seniors who wish to continue their education.  Counselors will inform students how to apply for scholarships and other financial assistance; however, it is the student's responsibility to follow through with the application, testing, etc.  Most scholarship and financial aid applications are due by March 15.  IF STUDENTS ARE CONSIDERING APPLYING FOR A SCHOLARSHIP, IT IS ADVISABLE TO TAKE THE ACT TEST/SAT TEST AT THE END OF THEIR JUNIOR YEAR.
