    Seniors, still trying to finish your college applications? Stop by the CCC this week for
    College Frenzy!
    Take a few minutes during lunch (or at other times if your teacher is willing to give you a pass). Come into the CCC and knock it out. Have someone look at your essay, walk you through FAFSA, or answer any other last minute questions. The finish line is in sight!
    Cupcakes and College Chat
    Monday, December 17, both lunches in the CCC
    Seniors, don't miss this fun annual event! Members from the class of 2018 will stop by during lunch to answer your questions about what college is really like. Learn how they deal with classes, social life, time managment, crazy roommates, and more! Bring your lunch and your questions. The cupcakes are on us.
    Essay Help Is Always Available in the CCC, Even During Winter Break
    Many college applications are due in early January. Let us help you with your essay or short answers! CCC volunteers will give you feedback to help you present your best face to colleges. We encourage you not to wait until a day or two before your application is due--you will want a little time to process our comments and make any needed changes. Email your essay to cccessayhelp@gmail.com
    Boys High School Alumni Scholarship
    Solely for Henry W. Grady High School
    Class of 2019
    $5,000 annually for up to four years. Application deadline February 15, 2019
    FAFSA Time!
    If you're applying to college, now is the time to complete the FAFSA! The sooner you complete it, the better because colleges won't be able to give you a financial aid package until it is done, and you don't want your top choice school to run out of aid money before they get to you. Visit www.fafsa.ed.gov.
    Parents, none of us want to think about this right now, but 30% of college freshmen do not return to college for their sophomore year. Is your child truly ready? Learn the warning signs and what you can do. And remember that a gap year can be wonderful for some students.
