Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope that you had a relaxing and enjoyable summer. I am sure that it feels bittersweet to have a Senior at Central Columbia High School this year. This time in your child’s life can seem overwhelming and confusing. I want to inform you of some events/information that can hopefully help you navigate way through your son/daughter’s senior year. I have the pleasure of being the counselor for this year’s senior class. Please feel free to email me with any questions that you may have.  Our Guidance website on the high school page has a great deal of useful information as well and a scholarship page that is always updated as we become aware of scholarship opportunities. 

Please save the date for this year’s financial aid and FAFSA night which will be on November 9th.   There will be more information on this event closer to the date. Robin Walker, from PHEAA will be discussing important information about financial aid for post-secondary education and then assisting you with completing your FAFSA and answering any questions you may have following the presentation. You will be able to attend one or both of the events.

The seniors will also be meeting with me throughout the school year as part of a Senior Seminar class.  We will be discussing scholarships, their plans for after high school and beyond, working on resumes, talking about smart borrowing and budgeting and preparing for the exit interviews at the end of the year.  The seniors will meet with representatives from different post-secondary institutions and myself during different periods throughout the year as a group.

The student’s schedules are currently available on Sapphire. All students will need to have 7 classes scheduled per semester. If they don’t, they will need to do one of the following: schedule more classes, secure an internship approved by Mr. Turner or have college classes scheduled. All internships must be approved by Mr. Turner by September 4th and must match their current career goal. Students taking college courses must have a 93 GPA, be proficient on all three Keystones and have all their graduation requirements scheduled. If you or your son/daughter would like to make schedule changes or discuss their plans after high school, please email me to set up a zoom meeting.

Again, please do not hesitate to call me with any questions or concerns.   I look forward to working with you for a successful transition to their senior year and beyond.

Sincerely,

Alycia Fairchild

Secondary School Counselor
