Upcoming "College Road Trips"

 

Lyman Hall and Sheehan will be visiting Gateway and Middlesex Community Colleges this spring.

 


Upcoming College Representative Visits

Every year, many colleges, universities and career schools visit Lyman Hall High School and Mark T. Sheehan High School. The purpose of these visits is to meet with our students and answer any questions the students have in order to help them explore their post high school possibilities. This year, these visits will be taking place in the college and career centers. Beginning in September and continuing through the middle of November, there will be up to 80 schools visiting Lyman Hall and Sheehan. For a full, updated list of these visiting colleges, please check in Naviance under the "Colleges" tab.

College Rep Visits happen in the Fall.

Image result for access applied

Students and Parents:

This year, The Wallingford Public Schools have access to a service called Access Applied.  

The mission is to demystify the financial aid process, which is good, because we all know how baffling it can be!  The website takes minimal personal information-- all financial worksheets are downloadable and personal financial information is NOT saved to the Access Applied website.

  • AccessApplied is a one-stop solution that explains and demystifies the entire college financial aid process. The site suggests ways to reduce college costs for families regardless of their financial condition and shows families how to find schools they can afford. 

  • Once AccessApplied is in use, families will be able to determine which schools they can afford - BEFORE the college search process begins.

The tools and guidance on the site provide EXPERT guidance about college affordability and financial aid - applicable to each individual family.  Parents, students and counselors are able to participate in an ongoing series of live and recorded webinars and to ask specific questions about their individual situation.

Please use the following link to complete the registration: https://www.accessapplied.com/user-registration/  

Note: In order to use this free site, you must obtain the access code from Miss Greaves, Mrs. McLaughlin or a school counselor.

Credit for Life 2018

Credit for Life was on February 27th at Wallingford Park and Rec.

All district sophomores attended this fun and educational event.

 

Credit for Life for Parents!

This year we are offering the parents of sophomore students the opportunity to hear about their student’s experience at Credit for Life, first hand!  On March 8th we will be hosting a mini Credit for Life event at The Hubcap Wallingford so that parents can learn about the event, lessons learned and be able to continue this important conversation with their students at home. In an effort to accommodate as many parents as possible we will be offering two sessions. The first will be at 6:00pm and the second at 7:30pm.  Please RSVP.
