Congratulations on being a senior at Centennial!!  While this should be one of the most exciting years of your school career thus far, it can also be quite stressful.  Whether it be filling out job applications, taking the ACT/SAT or applying for colleges and financial aid, there is a lot of work that needs to be done and only a short amount of time in which to do it. My goal as your Senior Seminar instructor is to ensure that each of you has a plan of action in place for meeting your post secondary goals.
Please spend some time reviewing the sites below.  Each has helpful information about post-secondary planning, as well as timelines and links to interest inventories that can help you as you begin thinking about life after high school.  If there is something you would like to know more about, please do not hesitate to speak with me.  Together we will work hard to ensure that you are prepared for life after high school.

Off to College - This website includes a month-by-month guide for planning your post-secondary career.  It also includes several links for financial planning and fun personality/interest inventories to determine which career options are right for you.

College Board - The company that administers the ACT/SAT has several guides and links that can be helpful as you plan for college.  The site also includes a link to set up a CSS Profile, which some colleges require in addition to the FAFSA for financial aid.

College in Colorado -This organization, based in Denver, is specifically geared toward colleges in Colorado.  After creating an account, you can use the site to help you explore career and education opportunities and build an online portfolio.  You can also use this site to access free ACT/SAT prep resources and learn about the Colorado Opportunity Fund (COF) - a fund established by the state legislature that provides stipends for undergraduate study in Colorado. 

FAFSA - The Free Application for Federal Student Aid website allows you to apply for grants from the federal government.  It is also a required document for financial aid offered by colleges.  Use this website to apply for student/parent PIN numbers and to fill out the application online.  Be sure to have the latest copies of your parents/gaurdians' tax returns handy.  

Today's Military -  A research site for students interested in joining the military and their parents.  The site includes direct links to all U.S. military branches and provides information about benefits and careers in the military.
