Voted Best in the North State 2016!
"It’s billed as the “leader of the north,” and Best Of voters concur that Shasta High School offers a rigorous curriculum that truly prepares students for life after high school, whether that means college, a trade school, the military or a career. Founded in 1899, Shasta High continues to set the bar with the highest scoring Advanced Placement program in the state, an award-winning music program and a competitive athletic program. Shasta has been recognized as a California Distinguished School three times, and it has diversified its career and technical education courses to include a Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) pathway and a medical pathway. It has the highest graduation rate in Shasta County and consistently sends graduates to some of the nation’s best universities. Leo Perez began his first year as principal this year, taking the reins from longtime leader Milan Woollard."
Seniors and Senior Parents:
If you are planning to apply to any accredited school after high school (trade school, community college, college or university) you should apply for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you don't want to file because you do not think you will qualify, keep in mind that many scholarships ask for your Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) from your FAFSA. Or if your circumstances change before next August, you would have the opportunity to adjust your FAFSA.
Before filing a FAFSA, the parent and student will each need to create a FSA ID number. Go to www.fsaid.ed.gov to begin the process. You will each need your social security number to complete it.
The FAFSA should be easier than ever to file. You can now file your FAFSA beginning Oct. 1, 2016 and it's still due by March 2nd. The sooner you complete it, the better. And, they will now let you file with prior, prior taxes (2015 taxes). You can even upload your taxes within the FAFSA application. Go to https://fafsa.ed.gov/ to begin the FAFSA.
If you need assistance with the FSA ID or FAFSA, you may contact your counselor or attend either of the following events:
Financial Aid Night, Oct. 17th @ 6 p.m.
Cash for College Night, Nov. 17th @ 6 p.m.
|Sports Boosters Dinner Auction, November 12, 2016 @ 5 p.m. Senior Citizen's Hall. More info|
