Guidance Resources

Read more: Guidance Resources The guidance department compiled a resource that contains reminders and information as you approach graduation, which starts before your senior year.  This resource also includes information needed to prepare for the transition to college or a career after high school.   These items include ACT dates and information, graduation requirements, college information, scholarship information, and financial aid.  This is only intended as a guide.  For more specific information, please contact the Clay Guidance Department, listen to announcements, check your email on a regular basis, and/or check the bulletin board outside the guidance office.  Future Planning - PDF

UCAN - PEAT Program

General Scholarship Information

2. Bring your college applications to the guidance office when completed.  The guidance department will help you check the application, make a copy for your file, add a transcript, and mail it for you as a complete package, if necessary.

3. If the scholarship requires a letter of recommendation, give the person you ask to write the letter plenty of time to get it written (at least a week's notice).

4. Never pay anyone for scholarship searches.

5. When the scholarships ask for a list of activities, be creative as long as you are accurate and factual.  Include youth groups or other activities even if they are not school related.
