The main purpose of the College and Career Center is to help students to better prepare for their life after graduation. A student can get one on one attention and help with researching colleges and the best fit for them, how to apply to college(s), financial aid and scholarship information.
In addition to helping students with college information, we have several recruiters from colleges that visit our campus. Students have the ability to sign up in our Guidance Department to meet with college recruiters to ask questions and gather information to help make valuable decisions as to where they may want to attend college. There are several field trips to various colleges throughout the year and students are encouraged to attend.
Several times a month we host our military partners on campus as well for students that may be considering going to the military. We have all branches of the military represented on campus at different times usually during both lunches. Signups are not required for this.
The center is open during lunches, after school, or during class with a pass from their teacher. Parents are welcome to call or make an appointment to visit.
Admission counselors can now go to https://CounselorCommunity.com to schedule an appointment with our high school. Thank you.

Planning for College
A little math never hurt anyone. Net Price Calculators are available on most college or university websites, allowing prospective students to enter information about themselves to find out what students like them paid to attend the institution in the previous year, after taking grants and scholarship aid into consideration.
Once a student has selected a college or has a list of colleges they are interested in, they can visit the College Navigator to learn more about those institutions including the types of degrees and programs they offer, admission requirements, campus safety statistics, accreditation information, retention and graduation rates, etc. The list of higher education institutions is limited to those who have provided information to the Department of Education through the services it offers.
Visit the Federal Student Aid website to learn more about how you can prepare for college or other options for higher education, the different types of aid that are available, who is eligible and how to become eligible, how to apply, and finally—how to manage loans once they’ve been accepted. Click through for more information on the process. We got you.
The Financial Aid Shopping Sheet is a document that students can fill out to help them break down the costs associated with going to the college of their choice. Line items include the estimated cost of attendance (tuition fees, housing and meals, books, transportation, etc.), total grants and scholarships to pay for college, loan options, federal work-study, etc. Print, fill out, be ready.

The Flinn Scholarship offers comprehensive financial and programmatic benefits, the latter extending far beyond undergraduate study into Scholars’ personal and professional development after graduation.
The Flinn Scholarship Program, in partnership with Arizona’s three state universities, provides enriched educational offerings that expand a Scholar’s life and career options while creating the kind of stimulating, intellectually challenging environment that students might find at the nation’s most selective colleges.
The value of the scholarship, including the tuition provided by the universities, exceeds $115,000. But there are comprehensive programmatic benefits of becoming a Flinn Scholar that can be just as valuable and rewarding. Application process begins late August until early October.
