I am the AmeriCorps Kentucky College Coach at ECHS. Our program typically serves 1st generation 9th-12th grade students. We work with students that have a desire to go to college and may need or wish to have some guidance along the way. There are approximately 40 AmeriCorps Kentucky College Coaches in Kentucky. In order for a student to be apart of the program they must turn in permission form signed by a parent or guardian.
On October 1st the FAFSA (Free Application for Student Aid) opened up. This is one of the many things we can help with in your student’s journey to college. This federal form should be completed prior to entering college. The FAFSA determines a student will receive money for college and determines eligibility for many grants and scholarships. Some colleges require the FAFSA to be filled out before a student will be accepted as a student of their school.We urge all high school Seniors to fill out the FAFSA. Before filling out the FAFSA the student and parent will need a FSA ID. The official FSA ID and FAFSA links are listed below:
