Winter College & Career Fair

SHS will host a Winter College and Career Fair on Thursday, January 21st from 6:30 - 8:00 pm. We have several colleges coming with information for the students. NCTC and UNT will be here with representatives from different college programs.

FAFSA Workshop: We will have a representative here to discuss the FAFSA. All Seniors need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Even if your family may not qualify based on financial need, many scholarship programs require a FAFSA application be completed.

Dual Credit Meeting: Come early (6:00 to 7:00) for a Dual Credit meeting. This meeting is for parents of students in any grade level who are interested in preparing their students for college classes. We will discuss requirements for dual credit, the differences between dual credit and Advanced Placement and other relevant topics.
