March 2023

Raider Nation,

As we wrap up the 1st half of this semester and start looking towards the home stretch, there are SO many opportunities we want our students and families to know are available to them. Please review this newsletter for counseling updates and student opportunities!


SENIORS & all students - Trade & Apprenticeship Opportunities

Your NFHS Counseling Team recently had the opportunity to visit the SkillsUSA competition event at the World Congress Center. We had the opportunity to connect with so many amazing representatives for companies looking for students ready to go into hands-on training and then work with them. A training program or apprenticeship can be an amazing option for students getting ready to graduate who want to go into a hands on career - diesel mechanic, roofer, electrician, plumbers, etc. If you or your student want more information on this, please do not hesitate to connect with your counselor! Please see a short list of some companies with these opportunities below:

JUNIORS!! QUESTBRIDGE - College Prep Scholars Program

Applying to college can seem daunting, and the prospect of paying for it can seem even more overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be. The College Prep Scholars Program equips high-achieving high school juniors from low-income backgrounds with the knowledge, confidence, and resources to apply to top colleges.

Why apply as a junior? Being a College Prep Scholar is a notable distinction that shows our college partners that you are a competitive candidate for admission. In addition, your application will automatically carry over for the National College Match when you’re a senior, giving you a head start on applying for a full four-year scholarship to our college partners. College Prep Scholars are over five times more likely than other applicants to receive full four-year scholarships through the National College Match.
