Last night our Senior College Planning Night was well attended with roughly 125 parents. Many aspects of the college planning and application process were covered. For parents that missed the event, BCAT will stream the event within the next few weeks. Informational packets were distributed to all that attended. If you would like to pick up a packet please feel free to stop by the Guidance Office.
Also for parents that missed the event last night the BHS Guidance Department will hold their annual "College Topics for Parents of Seniors" breakfast on October 22nd at 8:30 AM in the BHS Guidance College and Career Center. This informative event will cover the various topics relating to college selection and application process for parents of Burlington High School seniors.
In terms of financial aid, two very important forms were mentioned last night. The FAFSA and the CSS profile. We encourage parents to investigate both applications ASAP. Please remember that the BHS Guidance Department will host a Financial Aid Night on Thursday January 8, 2015 and BHS will be a location this year for FAFSA Day on January 25th.
One "new" process this year for seniors and parents of seniors is the use of the Burlington Community Scholarship Foundation Web-site. All seniors should create a profile ASAP.
