College Application & FAFSA Workshops

  • Posted on:  October 8, 2018

High Point Academy | Spartanburg, SCHigh School College Application Day will be on October 18th beginning at  12:30 P.M. Representatives from local colleges will be on campus to help seniors with the application process. During this time seniors will have the opportunity to apply to dozens of colleges using a fee waiver that HPA will provide only during this event. The fee waivers can save families hundreds of dollars! Please ensure that your senior is on campus for this important event. Our goal is to provide a forum for seniors to complete and file college applications. Guidance counselors and administrators will also be on hand to help our seniors with the process. You can email Mr. Hurley or Mrs. Jones if you have any questions.


High Point Academy | Spartanburg, SC On the evening of October 18 from 4:00 – 6:00 P.M. we will hold our yearly FAFSA Night (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Representatives from USC-Upstate and Spartanburg Community College will be at the school to assist students and parents in completing forms. The FAFSA information you enter will help qualify your child for specific grants, loans, and some scholarships. Students and parents will need to bring all 2017 tax forms to fill this out.  All students should plan to apply. You can email Mr. Hurley or Mrs. Jones if you have any questions.

 

At 6:30 P.M. the author of Pace Scholarship Academy’s Ultimate Scholarship Book, Mrs. Milhbauer, will be on campus to discuss scholarships available to South Carolina high school students. There are millions of unclaimed scholarships available if you know where to look. Mrs. Milhbauer will help direct you toward that free money. Her book will also be available for purchase at a discounted rate of $30.00.

 

Things to Keep In Mind:

  • Students should apply for aid even if they and their parents don’t think they’ll be eligible. Even if the assistance they receive is nothing more than an unsubsidized loan, the interest rate on the loan may be less than what they would pay on a private loan.
  • Tuition is not the whole picture; a student shouldn’t rule out a school until he or she knows what the net price will be after financial aid is taken into account.
  • When considering loans to help pay for postsecondary education, parents need to be as upfront with their children as possible. Everyone should be aware of what they can afford.
