YOUR HIGH SCHOOL TRANSCRIPT
Any time you need an official transcript to send somewhere, the best procedure is to go to the main office, and request a copy. If a student or parent obtains the transcript, it will be stamped in red, "issued to the student". It is best to have the official transcript sent directly from the school.
ALL ABOUT COLLEGE WEBSITE
The website www.allaboutcollege.com offers a good starting point with a real variety of information – links and advice about financial aid, fraternities, study abroad, student jobs and more. There is a section about individual colleges, with links to almost every public and private college.
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery will be given at PO-HI in November and February. It will take approximately 3 hours to complete. Though the test is given by military representatives, test takers are under no obligation to join the armed services. In addition to your test scores, you will also receive much information about how your scores relate to various career fields. Sign-ups to take this test will be in the Guidance Office right after Christmas Break.
A bulletin will be printed and distributed to every senior, the second week in January, that lists the local scholarships available to Po-Hi seniors. This includes, but is to limited to, awards given by the Lions Club, Rotary, ACT, Kiwanis club, Alumni Association and the Ponca City Music Club. The bulletin will give instructions and deadlines on applying. There are approximately 20 local scholarships available. Applications are not available until January and must be completed by the first week in March.
