SCHOLARSHIPS: Here's a starting point...
We encourage all high school students and their parents to begin preparing for the senior year as soon as possible.
- Conduct scholarship searches during the Junior year and the summer going into the Senior year.
- Make a list of all relevant scholarships AND their deadlines.
- Learn and practice writing effective essays.
- Your GPA matters! Take your classwork seriously.
- Create a high school bio/resume and keep it updated.
- Become a well-rounded student. Get involved!
- Find your passion and volunteer within your community and on campus.
- Keep track of your volunteer hours beginning with the Freshman year. (See Mrs. Morgan for help.)
- Employment is also important even if it is a summer job.
- Build relationships with your teachers; you will need letters of recommendation.
- Athletes should work closely with the Athletic Director to help promote him/herself on our web page and more.
- Apply for lots of scholarships.
- PRAY for God to open doors of blessing.
