Financial Aid Night — Newly Revamped for WHS Class of 2019!

THE FAFSA’S HAS CHANGED, and you’ll need to know what’s-what to file yours correctly. Our Newly Revamped Financial Aid Night is Thursday, September 27, 2018, in Powers Auditorium. We’ll start exactly at 6:30 pm, so try to arrive a few minutes early to get settled before the fun begins! (Better late than never, tho’ — so if you or your parents’ schedules mean you’ll need to come in mid-way, we’ll welcome you as soon as you can get here.)  We’ll help you create your required FSA IDs, and you’ll get a chance to stay after the main meeting to hear about the Senior Grad Party.

This is for seniors* and their parents, and is a VERY important next-step toward you reaching your future goals. Every year, there are BILLIONS of dollars awarded in financial aid. Come find out how to get your share of this money!

* This event is required for juniors and seniors who are ECMC Scholars. ALL seniors who attend will get their name in a drawing for a dorm ‘fridge (on display in the C&CC!) to be awarded at the 2019 Senior Breakfast.

Plan to take the SAT and/or ACT in Aug, Sept, or Oct in your senior year.

If you think you may want to attend a 4-year college or university after you graduate, you will need to take either the SAT or the ACT early in your senior year.  Your college applications need to be completed by the end of Thanksgiving Break OR earlier, depending on your schools’ application deadlines, so you’ll want to take your exams in August, September or October at the latest.  Watch those admissions deadlines carefully.  Usually the best scholarships and other funding depending on you applying on time, and there is NO latitude if you miss them. (If you are eligible for free or reduced lunch, you can contact your counselor for a fee waiver.)
