FAFSA INFORMATION (SENIORS ONLY)

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) opened on Oct. 1, 2017. The FAFSA is a student's application for financial aid for the 2018-2019 academic year and must be completed by students planning to go to a postsecondary institute (2-year, 4-year, and technical schools) to determine eligibility for federal, state, and institutional financial aid. A student should file a FAFSA even if the student thinks that he/she will not qualify for need-based aid. Many schools require FAFSA submission, and the FAFSA serves as a student’s application for the TN Hope Scholarship. The FAFSA application (available at FAFSA.gov) must be completed by January 16, 2018, for TN Promise applicants. Please remember that the FAFSA is FREE!! There are many internet scams which require payment to file a FAFSA. You should never have to pay for any part of this process.


Prior to completing the FAFSA, students must create a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID), which is used to confirm a student's identity when accessing financial aid information and to electronically sign federal student aid documents, including the FAFSA. Dependent students will also need to have one of his/her parents create an FSA ID so that the parent may electronically sign the student's FAFSA. To create an FSA ID, please visit fsaid.ed.gov.


After submitting the FAFSA, a student should be sure that he/she receives 2 e-mails: one verifying that the FAFSA was submitted and another stating that the FAFSA was processed.

FAFSA FRENZY - JANUARY 23, 2018

We will be having another FAFSA Frenzy during the day on Tuesday, January 23, 2018, between 8:30 - 11:30. Even if you are not able to bring 2016 tax information we can still submit your application. If any parent who would like to stop by is more than welcome to during that time. Deadline to remain eligible for TN Promise is January 26, 2018. I encourage every student to complete their FAFSA before this deadline.

NEW COUNSELOR

We would like to welcome Ms. Christian Collins to our counseling department. Ms. Collins will be filling in as interim for Ms. Coyle. While we hate to say goodbye to Ms. Huckaby, we are excited to introduce Ms. Collins.

CAREER AND TECHNICAL PROGRAMS

They provide opportunities for students to experience a subject that they are passionate about and explore interests that lead to post-secondary learning and future career paths. These sequenced courses also reflect and support the three-credit elective focus requirement for graduation.

The Agricultural Engineering pathway includes Agriscience, Agricultural Mechanics, and Agricultural Power and Equipment.

This course covers principles of greenhouse structures, plant health and growth, growing media, greenhouse crop selection and propagation, and management techniques.
