Counseling Department Updates

Welcome to semester 2! Students are settling into their new schedules. Students should reach out to their counselors if they would like to make changes. The deadline to drop a second semester course is Friday, February 16. 

11th Grade Kickoff to College Night: Monday, January 29th 6 PM on Zoom: Join us on Zoom for a panel discussion about the college application process. HHS counselors and admissions officers from Colby-Sawyer, UNH and Dartmouth will share essential information and answer your questions. We will email the Zoom link to senior families on Monday morning. This program will not be recorded, so please try to attend live!

Sophomore Meeting season is here! Sophomore meetings are an opportunity for 10th graders and their families to meet with their 10-12 school counselors to get to know one another better, reflect on their high school experiences thus far, and begin planning for 11th & 12th grade and beyond. Please respond to your school counselors’ email reach-outs and schedule your family’s sophomore meeting!

Seniors & Families Only: Futuring Planning To-Dos

Apply for Scholarships and Awards to fund your future plans. 

This Scholarship & Award Opportunities list will be updated weekly throughout the spring semester. Seniors also have access to this document on their class Schoology page. Check it often! In addition, we have hard copies of financial aid and scholarship resources are available to students in the Counseling Office. Students can stop by to browse the selection!

Complete the FAFSA.

The new Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now open. The FAFSA is an application for aid money to help pay for college, and the 24-25 form can be found at Here again is the information about the FAFSA that was emailed to you earlier this week. 

Help is available to complete the FAFSA!

New Hampshire families: Granite Edvance (formally known NHHEAF) is hosting FAFSA Financial Aid filing events at River Valley Community College. Students and families are invited to register for individual in-person assistance and support. Here is the link to register.

Vermont families: The VSAC scholarship application is due February 14th! The  VSAC Scholarship booklet describes many scholarships available to Vermonters, and the application can be started here. We also have hardcopies of these in the Counseling Department. We urge you to carefully review this resource for scholarship opportunities!

Keep SCOIR Updated

Please keep the “My College” section current! Ensure that colleges are correctly sorted into “applying” or “applied. This is how I continued to know where to send things like your transcript, quarter 1 grades, recommendation letters, list of senior year courses etc…

Keep Submitting your Applications

Monitor your application deadlines and submit your apps on time! Let me know if you have any questions about your specific applications.

Send Official Test Scores Through CollegeBoard or ACT (if applicable)

Next on the list is sending your official test scores(SAT, ACT,AP) through the College Board or ACT. If you have chosen to apply anywhere where you are submitting test scores, you will need to send official results from CollegeBoard or ACT directly to a given college. This can be done electronically through the links above.  

Monitor Each Individual College Application Portal

Every college you apply to will provide you with a login to set up an applicant portal after you apply. Create that applicant portal! This is how you will receive updates from your schools (including admissions decisions!) and schools may also request additional information. Please let me know if any documents are appearing in your portals as missing.
