Financial Aid Workshop Attention students! It is imperative that seniors and their families attend to understand their options for college for fall 2017.

Some of the topics that will be covered are: the principles of financial aid, the types of financial aid, grants, work study programs, and the CSS profile. There will be a variety of useful handouts and booklets available at this event. October 5 @ 6:00 PM (MUR).

 PSAT Attention students! The Practice SAT (PSAT) exam will be on Saturday, October 15th at 7:30 A.M. This exam gives students an opportunity to experience and prepare for the SAT exam which is required for college entrance. By taking this test in your junior year, you have the opportunity to qualify for the very prestigious National Merit Scholarship (NMSQT) program. However, it is also good practice for under classmen, especially sophomores, that would like to prepare early for the SAT exam and NMSQT. The test will be sold in the Student Store starting on September 26th through October 7th or until sold out. Please bring $25.00 cash or check to the Student Store and receive your official PSAT study guide.
Student Mock Election On October 11, 2016, during TAP, Santa Susana High School students will have an opportunity to participate in the California Student Mock Election. In 2008, more than 275,000 students cast ballots in the California Student Mock Presidential Election, joining millions of other young mock election voters across the United States in an impressive display of student opinion on the candidates and issues affecting the future of our state and nation. We are excited about our SSHS students' civic engagement and look forward to reporting our election results to the California Secretary of State.
