Summer Camp Opportunity
Georgetown College Pre-college academic experience in Math & Science.
June 16-June 28, 2019
All juniors are now able to sign up and take action to be eligible for College Board Opportunity Scholarships while your seniors continue their journeys. This scholarship program lays out six key steps for college planning and gives your students chances to earn scholarships for completing those steps. During this next semester, use these timely turn-key resources as a guide to help your students plan, prepare, and pay for college.
Pro Tip: Share a visual showing when scholarships are open and which students should apply—use the second page of the Educator Program Overview (.pdf/1.09 MB) flyer found on page 23 of your Pledge Resources Booklet. Utilize the implementation page for additional resources to support each scholarship step and the outreach page for onboarding your junior class.
Priority Action Steps for Your Seniors
Your seniors should focus on completing the last three actions in the scholarship program.
Last Call! The Improve Your Score Scholarship closes at the end of January.
Complete the FAFSA: $1,000
Closes End of February
Seniors who fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) will earn a chance at a $1,000 scholarship.
Note: Students who are legally ineligible to submit the FAFSA can still earn an entry for the scholarship by going to their My Action Plan page on the program website.
Pro Tip: Urge your students to fill out the FAFSA regardless of family income. It's free and qualifies students for many types of financial aid. Use the resources at fafsa.gov to provide detailed information on the FAFSA and to help guide your students and families through the process.
Apply to Colleges: $1,000
Closes End of February
To qualify, students must apply to at least two colleges, but additional college applications increase students' chances of enrolling in a four-year college that matches their academic, financial, and social needs. Applying to more than two colleges (a maximum of six) can also earn students additional scholarship entries.
Pro Tip: Use the student and counselor worksheets in your Pledge Resources Booklet entitled College Application Materials Checklist, Recommendations—Student Self-Assessment, and Tips for Letters of Recommendations on pages 41–43 to help your students apply to college.
Priority Action Steps for Your Juniors
Many students start their college research too late and don't explore colleges broadly enough, missing out on schools that could be a great fit for them. Introduce your juniors to this process early.
Build Your College List: $500
Open Through July
Students who create and save a college list on BigFuture™ with six or more colleges will earn a chance at a $500 scholarship.
Pro Tip: Refer to the College Exploration Worksheet and College Admissions Glossary on pages 28–29 of the Pledge Resources Booklet for details on how to build a college list.
Practice for the SAT: $1,000
Open Through October
Students who use Official SAT® Practice on Khan Academy® and practice for six or more hours will earn a chance at a $1,000 scholarship.
Pro Tip: Provide guidance to students for linking their College Board and Khan Academy accounts using the handout on page 32 of the Pledge Resources Booklet.
TEXT BLAST INFORMATION
As both educators and parents, we recognize and value the importance of timely information from the school. In an effort to better communicate school news and updates with parents we have signed up with Remind 101. This free service allows educators to send text "blast" to all subscribers. Simply follow the directions below and you will automatically receive any messages we send to the MCHS School community. This is a closed system. We will not have access to each other's cell phone numbers and you will not be able to text back. Our hope is to utilize this service to provide updates and reminders regarding important information and events for senior students. It is our sincere desire to assist you in keeping connected and up to date and with the guidance department.
