    I'm a Senior! What do I need to know now in order to be successful after high school?

    • Don’t get senioritis! Keep those grades strong!

    • Continue all of the great things you have been doing: community service, visiting XELLO and exploring careers, researching colleges, etc.

    • If you haven’t already, make sure to go on campus visits

    • Take the ACT (again) during the fall of your senior year

    • Apply to colleges in the fall (Nov. 1st is a big deadline!)

    • Apply to scholarships ALL YEAR

    • Complete the FAFSA by Dec. 1st (It opens Oct. 1st) FAFSA Night will be October 4th. Attend!

    • Complete housing contracts, if applicable, in the early spring

    • If you will be going straight into a career after high school, the CCC can help with that as well!

    • Ask questions! Talk to Mrs. Stork (the CCC), your school counselor, teachers, and others.
