Note about Summer School

If your student has received either an ‘F’ or an ‘INCOMPLETE’ for any courses, we strongly encourage them to enroll in Summer School in order to recover needed credits for high school graduation. Classes are FREE and are in an online format. The deadline to register for Summer school is July 7th. Register online on the CKSD website at http://ckschools.org/summer. 

Scholarship Newsletter

Juniors, please see last week’s newsletter for suggestions on your college research over the summer, including a list of schools you might want to research.  Scholarship Newsletter 6.16.23


What is FAFSA?  FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.  Colleges use your FAFSA data to determine your federal aid eligibility.  Many states and colleges use FAFSA data to award their own aid.  We encourage ALL students (Class of 2024) to fill out the FAFSA.  Even if you don’t receive aid, a lot of colleges will require that your FAFSA form be filled out to grant you academic scholarships as well.  

In the past, the FAFSA has opened each year on OCT 1.  Many changes are being made to the FAFSA for this coming year and it will be delayed in its opening.  We will make sure everyone has all the information they need to fill out their FAFSA and we will help you through the process.    In the meantime, you can create your FAFSA ID now.

Chris Koeblin is our resident financial aid specialist.  He will be available all summer out of Olympic College for any financial aid questions.          Email:  [email protected]
