COLLEGE FUNDING PLANNING The college search process involves both finding a college that is a good fit as well as developing a financial strategy to attend the school. The College Guidance Office hosts a seminar and provides tools to help parents (7th-12th) plan and finance college. We are also a resource for connecting families with financial aid and scholarship opportunities. It is important for families to start applying for these opportunities early in the senior year in order to benefit from collegesâ€™ available resources, as funds are often dispensed by chronological request. COLLEGE GUIDANCE NEWSLETTERS A monthly newsletter is emailed to all high school students and families. Parents may find it helpful to store these documents in an electronic folder for future reference, as they contain information about upcoming college-related events and deadlines.
