Planning for your college and/or career should start early! For that reason, a student's Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) meeting is extremely important in helping you access the many resources that are available. Each year, your School Counselor will remind you of the steps you could take to ensure that your transition from high school to adult life goes as smoothly as possible.

    To help you stay on track, check out the College Planning suggestions from College Board for 9th and 10th graders11th graders, and 12th graders.  For a month by month guide for juniors and seniors, try this resource: College Board's Prepping Parents.

    You can note that by minimally meeting our scholarships requirements of a 24 composite on the ACT and 3.0 GPA, the student will receive $20,000 over the course of their four years, and the figures increase from here. Also keep in mind that TOPS is not included in these figures.
