Financial Aid If you are thinking of continuing your education after high school whether it is at a four year school, two year school or vocational/technical school, you should know about financial aid. Jefferson High School hosts a Financial Aid Night each year to help students and parents learn “all there is to know” about applying for accepting, and do’s and don’ts of financial aid. Financial Aid comes in a variety of forms. Aid typically comes in a “package” or a combination of different kinds of assistance. For most kinds of financial aid, student must be enrolled at least half-time and show that they are making satisfactory progress in their program of study. Some student aid programs have special requirements and guidelines. The Free Application of Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the application required for federal, state and college-based aid. The applications must be filed after January 1 st of the senior year.
Military Career Options Students interested in enlisting after graduation should plan to visit the recruiters and to take the military entrance exam Armed Forces Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). The ASVAB is given twice each year at Jefferson High School. This test is a great tool for students to determine strengths and weaknesses in ten different categories.
