Southwest Public Schools has a college specialist whose goal is to support and guide students in their college, post-graduate, and career plans. It is important that you have a plan, and the specialist is here to help.
As students plan for college, there are many important deadlines to keep in mind. Our specialist helps prepare students by keeping them aware of pending/important dates, and by providing special guidance based on their grade level.
This section contains information related to researching colleges, applying to college (admissions), paying for college and transitioning (either from middle school to high school or high school to college).
There are many links because there are a lot of resources, such as:
Websites for registering for college acceptance exams, i.e., SAT (created by the College Board) and the ACT (created by ACT)
Financial aid options
Necessary steps such as completing the FAFSA (federal) & TAFSA (Texas)
Various scholarship opportunities and website dedicated to scholarship searches
As a district, Southwest Public Schools is currently looking at various options to serve as its primary online tool for middle school and high school career & college exploration.
