Class of 2022,
Get a jump start on preparing for college by taking the PreACT on March 19th at ECHS. The test will be from 9-12:00 and is on VC's flex day so you will have no VC classes.

FAFSA / Dream Act Applications
Seniors, the FAFSA / Dream Act Application deadline for many state financial aid programs is fast approaching, March 2, 2020. Completing your financial aid application to continue your education after you graduate is one of the most important steps of your senior year. The time to submit your application is now. Please consider the following:
1. Attend the "Cash 4 College" event at Ventura College (LRC) anytime between 10-1 on February 8th. There will be financial aid staff available to help students/parents complete the FAFSA or Dream Act application, regardless of if you plan to attend VC or not.
Step 2 IS REQUIRED for the "VC Promise" also known as the "CA Promise". Don't miss out on the opportunity and savings. Our goal is to have 100% of our seniors complete this important step. To receive maximum aid, the deadline to complete this step is March 2nd.
Speak to your counselor for guidance. ECHS's goal is to have 100% of seniors apply to FAFSA.
