Scholarship Information

Local Scholarships

Every year, ACHS is lucky enough to have many local scholarships that are available to the senior class. It is a wonderful opportunity to earn money for college and offset the Cost of Attendance. The School Counseling Office encourages students to apply for all scholarships that they qualify for! Local Scholarships will be made available in the spring semester, around January.

**Local Scholarships are available to all current seniors in the counseling office**

National Scholarships

You can start working on national scholarships as early as the summer before your senior year (there are also scholarships available to underclassmen as well!). These scholarships are extremely competitive and should be completed with the up-most care. If you feel like you will need lots of scholarship money, national scholarships are a great way to start.

           Online Scholarships are a scam if:    

Students are asked to pay a fee

Students are asked for his/her social security number

Students are asked for bank account information

Students see phrases such as "come for a free seminar", "we'll do all the work for you", etc.

Students see 900 area codes (ex: 1-900-###-####)

You believe it sounds too good to be true.
