College and Career
FAFSA
Seniors! Whether you are attending a 4-year or 2-year community college, or thinking of attending a vocational school, please make sure to apply for the FAFSA no later than March 2nd. Even if you don't think you will qualify, this is a way that colleges will consider you for need, merit, or other institutional aid and can help you qualify for the federal loans that generally have a better rate than the private loans you may need.

SAT Prep
Interested in SAT prep, but don't have the time after school or on weekends? Solution: one-hour prep on late start Fridays. SAT prep begins Friday March 1 (see attached flyer for schedule of classes). The classes are offered at a discounted rate of $369 and are run through Tried & True Tutoring on SSHS campus in the College & Career Center. The price includes materials and full-length mock SAT pre-and post-tests! There are a limited number of scholarships available for students who cannot afford the cost but want to attend.
