    College Search:  bigfuture.com and cfnc.org -- Look for colleges that offer programs you are interested in.  Once you find some schools, go to the college's website to explore the program.  You can also search by your ACT score to compare how you match the freshmen who are admitted to the school.
     
    ACT or SAT:  If you are considering attending a four year college or university after graduation, then you should think about taking the ACT or SAT at least twice, and completing some test preparation before you take them.  If you haven't already taken the test a second time, it is a good idea to take the test no later than August or September of your senior year so you will get your score back early.  That also gives you the summer to do some test prep!

    Scholarships:  "How can I get some scholarships for college?"  Great question!  The short answer is to apply to as many scholarships as you are eligible for.  I recommend creating a google spreadsheet that includes the scholarship name, due date, website, and any special items needed like recommendations, transcripts, or test scores.  Then, as you search through the scholarship sites below, just fill in your spreadsheet.  You can sort the spreadsheet by due date to make sure you are applying on time.
