College Application Week

Armstrong High School

College Application Week

During the week of November 18 – 22, 2013, the Secretary of Education’s Office, the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia and the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia will be sponsoring Virginia College Application Week. On November 18-22 all seniors expected to graduate in 2014 will be encouraged to apply for admission to at least one college or university, if they have not already done so. This event is possible due to the collaborative efforts of the administration, faculty, and staff at Armstrong High School, as well as students, their families, and volunteers across the community.


The purpose of this day is to acquaint students with the college application process and to communicate the importance of applying to college. Information about completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will also be made available during the event.


Armstrong High School will be hosting our College Application event on November 18-22 to assist our students during the application process. We welcome the community to be a part of the program. If you are interested in volunteering or guest speaking during the event, please let me know. Volunteers can greet and sign-in students, assist students with the completion of college applications, or distribute information about financial aid opportunities.


If you have any questions please call Amber Shepherd-Thompson, School Counselor, at 804-780-4449. Thank you in advance for your support of this exciting initiative to encourage all Virginia students to make college a part of their future.
