Life After High School
Life after graduating can be a confusing and challenging time for students. Below is an online resource that can help prepare students for what comes after completing their high school education.
College Fairs Dates
Most college fairs have moved to a virtual environment. This provides students the opportunity to meet with more colleges and universities of their choice.
The ACT and SAT
The ACT and SAT are standardized tests used by colleges nationwide for admissions. Both tests are used to access a student's college readiness. Each test is offered several times throughout the year and generally one must be taken before a student begins the application process to a college or university. Currently, many colleges and universities are waiving the SAT/ACT requirement. Students need to check with their desired institution to prepare adequately for the requirements.
Revolution Prep is a great company to partner with for SAT/ACT preparations.
Testing Dates for the ACT and SAT
Below are the scheduled testing dates for the ACT and SAT tests.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
In the course of our research, we found that most students were not aware that nearly all of them are eligible for some form of financial aid. Because of this, we decided to create a user-friendly guide that clarifies common questions, making it easier for students to have access to the support they qualify for to start or continue their education.
We are always looking for ways our students can earn scholarships for post high school education plans. By giving you and your students the tools to make this possible, we hope that this will inspire and encourage them that they are not alone as they set off into their bright futures!
