We have some very exciting upcoming events for our high school students. These are opportunities for our students to explore college and careers for their future interests.
Seniors: most college applications are open. Go to applytexas.org and start your application process. Be sure to let the counselors know if you have been accepted.
October 1st – FASFA
Students will be able to file a 2017-2018 FAFSA on October 1st, rather than January 1st, 2017. Students will report their 2015 income information, rather than 2016 information. Seniors, look in the envelope sent home with your report card for more information, or you can visit the website StudentAid.gov/fafsa for more information. Most seniors have already created their FSA ID and just need to continue filling out the FASFA.
October 6th – The United States Hispanic Leadership Institute Career Fair
All Juniors and interested Seniors need to get a permission slip and bring it back by Wednesday October 5th.
Career Cruising – All students have gone through and started interests inventories on the website career cruising. Most parents received the parent portal login to access this website. Please visit career cruising and see what areas your son or daughter are interested in pursuing.
