College Planning

  • BigFuture is a site created by The College Board, the same folks that create the PSAT, SAT and AP exams.  This is a profile-based site where students can get started on all things college prep.  Students can create an account to save their information and progress, or use their College Board account they have from previous exam registration.  Take a moment and click the image above.  We think you’ll have a great experience exploring colleges, careers and getting a little more insight on your plan for the future.

  • Just as the graphic states, “Explore. Plan. Succeed.,” this site is Georgia’s option to assist students, parents and educators on college and career readiness.  Here you can find direct information about the HOPE and Zell Miller Scholarship/Grants, other financial aid information, overall college planning and career exploration tools and information on Dual Enrollment.  GA students need an account so that they can maximize their potential for using this site which includes but is not limited to: seeing your preliminary HOPE GPA, sending transcripts and applying to GA based colleges/tech schools.  Click the image above and start your path of understanding all that is offered.
