May showers bring graduation!

It is important to meet the application and financial aid priority deadlines so that you will be ontrack for the maximum amount of money you would qualify for. If you haven’t completed your FAFSA it will be critical to do so as soon as possible.

We are into May now and seniors should be making final choices for college/training. The preadvising session with CSI will be at NVA on May 9th in the afternoon and the S.O.A.R event (required orientation at CSI) will be May 19. We will go together as a group with GHS and have all of our classes chosen and in place and the orientation out of the way so that the summer can be used for work and play. If you cannot attend this event then you may register for one of several sessions that will be offered during the summer. You will register online.

Don’t forget to keep the scholarship hunt going...see the scholarship document on the Counselor Page on this website.
