Parents and students can find the newest edition of the "Counselor's Corner" and the newest "Scholarship List" under "documents."  Three new scholarships have been listed for seniors and one new scholarship has been listed for students who are 30 and under and are enrolled in a career or technical program for Fall 2017.  That scholarship, Horatio Alger Career and Technical, has a deadline of August 31st.  Alton High School is proud to announce that one of our 2017 graduates, Ambrosia Vonallmen, received this scholarship in June.  We would love to see more of our past graduates earn this $2500 scholarship.  Go to www.scholars.horatioalger.org for an application.

The "Counselor's Corner" also has information about the ACT Testing program for this school year.  All seniors and juniors are encouraged to take this test at least once this year - the state will no longer mandate the April ACT testing for juniors.  Some students will qualify for a fee waiver.  Go to www.act.org for more specific information or to register for the test.

Check all of this out and more by looking under "documents."  These will be updated about every two weeks.  New scholarships are listed on the bulletin as they come in, so you may want to catch the latest new by looking at the bulletin.
