This Week In Guidance @ SHS: For all Families

From SHS Guidance Director Kathy Lucas 
Senior parents attended our Financial Aid Night on Thursday, Sept. 29th.  Parents received up to date information on the ever changing Financial Aid process including this years’ FAFSA (federal financial aid application) requirements and deadlines.  In addition to the school counselors we were joined by Jody Conway, College Financial Aid Advisor as our guest speaker.  Jody worked for many years as a college financial aid director and reviewed the financial aid process explaining the steps for parents and how financial aid packages are decided by colleges.
School counselors met with all juniors  to discuss PSAT registration and the importance of taking the assessment in the post-secondary planning process.  Students were also informed of  All Cape College Day which will be held at Barnstable High School on Wednesday, October 19th from 3:30-5:30. There will be over 165 colleges represented at the fair this year. You can view and download the flyer here: all-cape-college-day-flyer-2016
The PSAT is offered to all sophomores and juniors.  There is a $15 fee for juniors which is due in Guidance by Oct. 11th. The exam will be administered at Sandwich High School on Wednesday, October 19th at 7:30 a.m.  Buses will not be available for the PSAT start time as this is a late start day.

The ASVAB will be offered this year to those juniors and seniors interested in the military.  Students must have parental consent to take this exam.  Permission slips are available in the Guidance department.
Thanks
