Education Quest is here on Thursdays!
Beginning January 12, 2017
You can sign up in the Counseling Center for an appointment with RJ Vega from Education Quest. He can help with FAFSA applications, College searches, Scholarship searches and College planning.
Seniors…have you visited your top colleges?
If you haven’t done so already, visit your top colleges soon to narrow your choices. Application deadlines will start hitting later this fall. Follow these tips for a successful visit:
Contact the admissions office at least two weeks in advance to schedule your visit.
Check out the college website before your visit. Most have a section for prospective students. You might even be able to schedule your campus visit online.
Visit while school is in session. You won’t get the true flavor during breaks or finals week.
Ask LOTS of questions. Here’s a list of good questions to ask.

College Club every Tuesday during PLC!
College Club is a chance for you to meet with the 6 Lincoln High counselors on a regular basis to get the help you need to access college. We will work on registering for the ACT exam, searching for scholarships, applying to colleges, completing the FAFSA, and more! We will meet on Tuesdays during PLC Early Release time (approximately 2:15 – 3:15). Come to Room 100D to join in the fun! There is no deadline to sign up so come join us when you can! We have snacks too!
In School College Visits
Students that are interested in visiting with a College or Military representative need to report to their class first, get a pass from their teacher and then report to the assigned area of the speaker. Students are responsible for any work they miss in class while attending a session.
