Attention Students:  If your family needs help paying for college -- and who doesn't? -- then be sure to bring your parents to upcoming presentations about "How to Apply for Financial Aid." 
Financial Aid is for 2-year colleges, 4-year colleges, or vocational-technical schools AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GPA OR ACT SCORES -- it is strictly money because your family needs help! BUT YOU MUST APPLY FOR IT BY THE END OF FEBRUARY!  The next presentation is on January 28 is for seniors only in Horizon's computer lab, where an expert will actually be at Horizon, helping families submit their applications online. Don't miss this great opportunities to learn how anyone can afford college! 

ATTENTION JUNIORS AND SENIORS:  Are you one of those students who think they may not be ready for college immediately after high school?  Would you be up for a different type of rewarding experience that is a change of pace and something that looks great to put on a resume? Then a GAP YEAR might be just what you need!  You are invited to Peak to Peak Charter School on January 21 to learn about a variety of GAP YEAR activities, from AmeriCorp to internships in New York City! See the Counseling Office Bulletin Board for more information!

Seniors - Do you know where you are going to college? When you have received your acceptance letter and make your final decision, come to the counseling office and let us know so that we can get your college choice along with your senior picture up on the college bulletin board in the lobby!  Please report any and all scholarship offers to Ms. Jones in the Main Office.
