Information about post-secondary choices after "the Shroder Experience."
We will keep you apprised of upcoming events such as College and Career Fairs in-house and abroad, college tours, college visits to Shroder, college testing dates, Financial Aid Night, FAFSA workshops, and the Junior College Intersession. Additionally, the Guidance Office will provide information about online SAT and ACT practice tests in addition to providing hands-on preparation for both tests during after-school tutorial sessions. All scholarship information with corresponding links can be found in our POST-SECONDARY FUNDING section. This section provides specifics on the college application process with guides to researching potential programs that aren't limited to two/four-year colleges and universities. Our ultimate goal is to provide every student with a premier educational foundation that leads to their success in the future.
