EAG Class of 2021 Senior Newsletter

Week of September 12th

I've really enjoyed getting to meet all of you during our Senior English class meetings. Next week, I'll start meeting with each of you individually!! In the meantime, here are some helpful steps for you...


1. The Time is Now so Let's Start Planning!

College application and scholarship deadlines are firm, so it's best to start early. Knowing ahead of time when certain deadlines are will save you and your parents from a major headache later on.

2. Don't forget your actual schoolwork!

Yes, it's your senior year but colleges are still looking at the grades you make your senior year. They want to see if you can and will finish strong so don't let your study habits slip now.

3. Know your limits and seek help when you need to!

You don't have to "climb this mountain" and figure this all out by yourself. If you don't know where to begin or just feeling overwhelmed, remember I'm here to help you!!

4. Look at your options!

I would recommend for you to keep exploring options, who knows what you might find that fits your fancy. You might find out that your dream school actually might be affordable or you might find a major that you haven't thought of before.

5. Don't forget to Breathe!!

This is your senior and you do need to enjoy it. If you plan right, (this goes back to step 1), you should be able to do it all and still have time to enjoy your senior year - hanging out with friends, going to games, Prom, Graduation and so much more! Be sure to have some school spirit and Enjoy!!


Be sure to come see me if you need anything!!

Scholarships... Money, Money, Money!

Did you know that you don't have to always have the highest GPA or ACT score to get a scholarship? Whoa! While it does take some research and some time to actually apply, there is money out there and a lot of scholarships go unclaimed because no one takes the time to apply.


So where do find scholarships? That's an great question!

1. Be sure to check the school that you are applying for. They will have specific scholarships for their school. While most of these are merit-based (based on your GPA, courses taken and test scores) there may be other so be sure to check out their website.

2. Search Engines - these are great because they have millions of dollars worth of scholarships listed. We've complied a list of these on the EAG Counseling webpage.

3. Local Scholarships - Also on the EAG Counseling webpage are a list of scholarships we are notified of. We are constantly updating this so be sure to check it out regularly.


The key is to APPLY, APPLY, APPLY!!

Plan to Play Sports in College?

If you are planning to play sports in college you must register for either the NCAA or NAIA.


If you are planning to play at a Division I or Division II school, you will need to be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center in order to compete. You must create a certification account in order to make official visits to Division I and II schools or to sign a National letter of Intent. You will then receive an NCAA Id and important reminders as you complete high school.


See Coach McClaran for details.
