Grade 9 will be seen from March 16-20. Please be sure that all students sign up for guidance appointments during the week that is scheduled for their grade.
Seniors and Families Applying for Financial Aid
Now is the time to create PIN #’s for the FAFSA. A PIN number must be created for both students and parents. An early filing date is always encouraged because money runs out at colleges the later you wait.
Mark your calendar for January 25th – College Goal Sunday (registration is open now). At College Goal Sunday, students and parents can talk to experts and get in-depth help filling out the FAFSA. We strongly encourage students and parents to attend College Goal Sunday together. Click here for locations and more information. *Norwalk has postponed their session to February 8th.*
Also be sure to look at the scholarship opportunities available via Naviance, the SHS Guidance website, and the PTA Wreckord. Please note that some local scholarships such as Staples Tuition Grants and Westport Woman’s club require a FAFSA as part of the application.
