The counseling office holds multiple Guidance Information Nights throughout the year to assist students and their parents as well as to provide them with needed information to navigate through EHS and for life after graduation. Below is a listing of the events and a brief description in order of their dates.
Financial Aid and 12th Grade Naviance Parent Night – September 18th, 2019
The financial aid presentation will start at 6pm and the Naviance portion will begin directly after.
Financial Aid Night is held for seniors and their parents. An explanation of the categories of financial aid is provided along with information on how and when to apply for these resources. The components of financial aid packages are explained along with definitions of the terms used. The program continues with a line by line explanation on how to fill out the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA).
The 12th Grade Naviance Parent Presentation is intended to provide parents of seniors with information that will help navigate Naviance, a web-based tool for college and career planning. EHS students applying to college are required to use Naviance to request transcripts and send supporting documents to schools. We hope all twelfth grade parents will consider attending the program to learn more about the tools available to assist with the college and career transitions.
