College Information and Financial Aid Night!

ATTENTION PARENTS – The SCHS and ECS counselors will host our annual College Information and Financial Aid Night for parents of seniors on Thursday, November 8 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the Scott County High School auditorium.  This is not a college fair, but rather a time for a representative from a local public university, private college, community college, and KHEAA to give general information about the college admissions process, application deadlines, ACT and SAT test scores, searching for scholarships, applying for financial aid, and completing the FAFSA form.  Please mark your calendar and plan to join us for an information packed evening!  Parents of sophomore and junior level students are also welcome.
