College Scholarships/Financial Aid

After admission, how to pay for college education becomes of utmost importance. For all types of aid: grants, loans, 21st Century Scholars, work study and scholarships, all students and their families need to file a FAFSA (Free Application For Student Aid). FAFSA window will open Oct 1st of your student's senior year and must be filed before March 10th.

There are three basic sources for college scholarships:


  • to be considered for merit-based scholarships, each college has an internal deadline. Students must submit their college application by that date. Typically, these dates are in early fall.
  • in addition, there are scholarship search engines available on the web. One of the most well-known is
  • when Guidance is notified of local or national scholarships for which our students qualify, this information is published on the announcements, posted in the junior/senior religion and English classrooms, and in the Guidance hallway. Further information, help, and application forms are available in Guidance RM 144.



Scholarship information for seniors applying to college will be listed in Naviance (under Colleges tab at the top right > Scholarship & Money > Scholarship List) as they become available. Another good source is to check with the college you are applying for information on their scholarships - many colleges have early deadlines (November 1 or December 1) for the competitive school scholarships.
