JUNIORS: Mr. McNeil and Ms. Hallen hope to meet with every junior and their parents / guardians during the months of February, March, or April. Please contact Ms. Theobald at 859-2437 to schedule an appointment. Each appointment takes approximately 45 minutes and can be arranged during a student's study hall, before school, after school, or in the evenings (during the day is ideal whenever possible). Mr. McNeil will offer additional appointments from 3:00-7:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Ms. Hallen will offer additional appointments from 3:00-7:00pm on Mondays and Tuesdays. We will discuss your student's schedule, transcript, credits, and what they need to get ready for their plan after graduation (college, military service, employment, etc.). Having these meetings can clear up many questions so please reach out to Ms. Theobald at your earliest convenience to schedule a time for us to meet. 

SENIORS:  If you are even thinking about attending college in 2017-2018, please be certain to FILE THE FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov

Need help completing the FAFSA? Find lots of resources and how-to videos on the Finance Authority of Maine You Tube Channel. They present short, helpful videos on different components of financial aid:

If you still need help, please contact Ms. Hallen or Mr. McNeil and we will try to help with basic FAFSA issues. For involved or complicated financial situations, please let us know and we will arrange a meeting between your family and a local financial aid expert to get individual assistance.  The FAFSA is pretty easy to get through and there are many help resources!
