College Advising

College, Career, & Financial Aid Advising

The Scholarship Fund’s college advisers are available to meet with students and families in our offices at the Alexandria City High School King Street campus all year round (including summer). We would be happy to assist you with anything from planning a college preparatory schedule in middle school, to editing college essays, completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and more. We also host evening programs throughout the school year and provide classroom presentations at the middle and high school levels. Our doors are open to all, but we specifically seek to serve first-generation to college and lower-income families.

  • Grades 6-8: Middle school is the time to lay a strong foundation for success in high school and beyond. We want to help you set goals and develop a concrete plan to achieve them. Take advantage of our after school program and events for middle school families!
  • Grades 9-10: The college application begins in 9th grade. A student’s high school transcript (summary of 9th – 12th grade courses/grades) is the most heavily weighted portion of his/her application. We’ll make sure you’re staying on track to be admitted to the school of your choice!
  • Grades 11-12: Junior and senior year can be a stressful time. We are here to support you with selecting match and fit colleges, filling out applications, brainstorming and editing essays, submitting scholarship and financial aid forms, and more.
  • Titan Alumni: Once a Titan, always a Titan. No matter how many years since you’ve graduated, we are still available to help with college course selection, navigating Guaranteed Admissions Agreements, the transfer process, scholarship applications, FAFSA renewals, and career advising.

Questions?

We’d love to get to know you and support your family in making college dreams a reality. Please contact us!
