Bridges to College Sponsors an ACT and Financial Aid Night

Julie Goldschmidt teaches Algebra 2, PreCalculus, and AP Calculus at Fort Loramie High School. Shelley Poeppelman teaches the Senior English courses, including AP English, at Fort Loramie High School. They have been conducting the ACT prep workshops for students in the tri-county area for the past three years, with very positive results!
Bridges to College is an organization that works with students from the Greenville, Ansonia and Franklin Monroe school systems to help navigate the college process. We work with both students and their families, because getting to college takes a commitment from both sides. The most often asked question that we get from parents is “How can we find scholarships?” This presentation will help to answer that question because the biggest hurdle to cross when it comes to college, is often, how to pay for it.

Many of you may be wondering how a student’s ACT score fits in with financial aid. The ACT composite score is one of the most important factors in a student obtaining scholarships and merit aid from colleges. This translates into what most would call “free money.” The best part is that these awards are given each year the student attends the college, as long as the student maintains the requirements set out within each scholarship.

Research has proven that a student’s ACT score can be improved with preparation. Julie Goldschmidt and Shelly Poeppelman, teachers from Fort Loramie High School, have recognized how important it is to provide students with an opportunity to learn how to improve their ACT score. Bridges to College is excited to have them share their program that they have built over the past few years in an ACT Prep Class format.

On Tuesday, January 19th at 7p.m., Chris Seger, a Bridges to College Board member, will present helpful information on Financial Aid and the FAFSA. The presentation will be held at the Greenville Senior High School Cafeteria. At the conclusion of the presentation, we will have a time for questions and also provide additional resources for getting help.
