Collegiate Seminar (offered during students' senior year)
Spring semester is dedicated to financial aid and financial planning. Students are guided through the FAFSA as well as private scholarship research. Spring semester is especially exciting as students receive their college acceptances and make their final decisions about where they will be matriculating to in the fall. Parents are a crucial part of the financial aid and decision process and are expected to play a active role in meeting deadlines and communicating with the college counselor, the student's advisor and the student about goals, questions and concerns they may have.
Baker's Collegiate Seminar course is a uniquely designed to assure students have all the resources and tools necessary to matriculate to and graduate from a four-year university/college. Proper preparation for the academic, financial, emotional and social demands of college is essential to realizing college graduation and opening the door of opportunity to all our students.
