Guidance - Paying For College
Skip Navigation LinksHome > Guidance > College Planning > Paying For College
Doing academically well enough in high school to get into the college of your choice...Priceless!
Finding out of 3500 colleges the one college that is perfect for you....Priceless!
Discovering how much college costs....Agonizing!
Make no mistake about it, college can be expensive. But, don't let the sticker price
of college keep you from attending. There are grants, aid and loans that can help.
Sometimes a college that is way more expensive can actually cost less per year because
of the aid the expensive college can offer. You need to be realistic, but don't
make decisions on a hunch. Get the raw facts directly from the college about "your"
costs before you make any final decisions.
We have included some links to a few website to start getting informed about Financial
Aid. The Guidance Department sponsors a Financial Aid Night each January to help
parents of seniors who have questions, but all parents are welcome.
Although as counselors we try to stay current on Financial Aid, the information
is ever changing and we could never keep current enough to answer all your questions.
The good news is that every college has a financial aid office. These folks are
experts and are very willing to answer your questions.
Please feel free to ask you counselor any questions. If we don't know the answer
we will find out or direct you to someone who can give you an accurate answer.
