    The SAT is Coming on Wednesday, March 4! 

    All juniors will take the SAT at school. Students are already registered for this, but they should prepare. Even spending a few minutes on Kahn Academy can help. Also, check out these tips from the recent webinar presented by Applerouth. If you want to watch the whole one-hour webinar, visit 




    First, make sure you know what you'll have to pay at each school that admitted you. Each college that admits you should provide a financial aid award. If you didn't get one or you have questions, contact the college's financial aid office and find out how much grant, scholarship, or gift aid you're getting from that school. If you still have a gap to fill, look for scholarships before you take out a loan. Here are some resources. For more, stop by the CCC.
