Need help with the FAFSA College Financial Aid Form?
All seniors who are planning to attend a college or adult career center next year must complete the FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, in order to receive grants and most scholarships.  We recognize that the process of applying for the FAFSA can be confusing for parents and guardians.  That's why we are offering you an opportunity to work with a financial aid expert to get this application completed.

FAFSA Help will be available on Thursday, March 16th, at VCHS, from 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm.  Each appointment will last about 20-30 minutes.  This is a perfect opportunity for you to help your student get the grants and scholarships for which they qualify. 

To book your appointment, please call Andee Caudill at 740-596-5258 to schedule. Spots are limited, so call today.

Children of parents who talk to their teens about drugs are up to 50% less likely to use.
An effort is underway across Ohio to prevent drug use among Ohio’s most vulnerable citizens – our children. Governor John R. Kasich and First Lady Karen W. Kasich have launched Start Talking! to give parents, guardians, educators and community leaders the tools to start the conversation with Ohio’s youth about the importance of living healthy, drug-free lives. A majority of substance-free adolescents credit their parents for the decision not to use illegal substances. Likewise, teachers and other authority figures can have a similar influence on youth and their decision-making.

Parents, mentors and peers can make a difference just by talking to the young people in their lives about drug use. Please Start Talking!

The U.S. Department of Education, Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and Ad Council have partnered to create a public service campaign, Absences Add Up.  The campaign provides parents resources to help ensure their children attend school each day.  For more information, visit AbsencesAddUP.org
