Winthrop High School will be hosting a Winter College night for both Maranacook and Winthrop High Schools on Thursday, January 22nd at 6:00 p.m. We will have sessions on college admissions, how to read PSAT scores and how to save for college among other topics. This is an appealing opportunity for parents of Sophomore and Juniors, please come join us!
Winthrop High School Juniors will also be reviewing their ASVAB scores and taking a career inventory to compare their skills and interests. We will be using this data later this Spring with all students in a "Career Day" which will entail inviting area professionals from Winthrop to speak with our students about careers that are appealing to them.
Lastly, Winter break is the best time to fill out the FAFSA for financial aid for those students attending two and four year post-secondary institutions next fall. Remember- the application becomes available on January 1st and the sooner it is completed, the more money you may qualify for. This is also a great time to apply for state and National scholarships.
Please do not hesitate to call our guidance office with any questions at 377-2228 ext. 305.
