We have scholarship opportunities that come and go throughout the school year. To be sure you are a part of those opportunities, be sure that you check with the counselor’s office at least weekly in case we get a scholarship opportunity brought to us that doesn’t make the website in time!

Below are scholarship opportunities and information about some non-school affiliated scholarships and scholarships for particular colleges.
