Greetings Senior class!
It is that time of the year for your senior 1 on 1 meeting. We meet with seniors every year to make sure we answer any questions they may have to prepare for life after high school. We are using calendly to allow seniors to book an appointment with their counselor. It is super easy.
- Click on your counselor’s name.
- It will take you to their calendar.
- Please choose a day that is NOT your face to face day.
Also do not forget that you can get more in-depth information from our college advisor Ms. Lucy Prothero firstname.lastname@example.org . You can book an appointment with her at https://calendly.com/fhhscollegeadvising. If you have questions email your counselor.
Ms. Prothero shares great information in her College 101 video!
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is an application that all seniors and their parents who want to apply for federally funded financial aid programs must complete to gain access to the funds (federal grants and loans). It is important to complete the FAFSA because the information allows each college to have a full picture of how students will be paying for college and if added help is needed.
The website is www.fafsa.ed.gov.
The FAFSA is available on October 1 of each year.
Below is a step-by-step video that will help with the completion of the FAFSA:
Residency Determination Service (RDS) confirms a student's residency status for admissions applications to multiple North Carolina public colleges. Check out the 10 Things to Know Before Starting RDS for more information
If you have questions about a scholarship or the application process, please email Ms. Prothero or your School Counselor. You can also find most of the information on The Forest Hills High School College Advising website! You can also access a scholarship search through UCPS College Readiness online.
Any scholarships should be reported to Ms. Ponder. Award money that is offered from a school the student is not planning to attend should still be reported. These students can then be recognized at graduation for receiving scholarships!
Ms. Prothero will be scheduling virtual visits with college reps throughout the year. Check student email for more information from her!

Parents! Use these directions to become a Canvas observer in your student's courses. This is a great way to track your student's progress in their courses. Observers are not able to submit work on behalf of the students they observe, but they can see student grades, assignments, and calendar events.
