    All of these links and more are also available on the School Counseling Program Google Site!
    • College & Financial Aid Information (See "Links" page in right navigation)
    • College Planning – All SPA students leave high school with a Life After SPA plan! This may include college, apprenticeship, trade school, military, or employment plans.  Various colleges and post high school programs come to SPA throughout the year to talk to students, see the Transition Coordinator/Job Coach for more information or see our "Links" page for additional resources!
    • Accuplacer Testing – All SPA students are challenged to score at Pre-Tech or higher on Accuplacer testing before graduation. Why does it matter? Students who score at Basic level can’t use financial aid or scholarships to pay for the Basic level classes that the college will require them to take before moving on to college level material. By helping SPA graduates score at Pre-Tech level or higher, we help make sure that you get to use every dime of your financial aid and scholarships to start your education right away! See your advisor or school counselor for more information on Accuplacer. 
    • SAT & ACT Testing - Students planning to go to four year colleges should take the SAT and/or ACT test at least once before graduation. Fee Waivers are available for students who receive free or reduced lunch or qualify under other provisions. (See "Links" page in right navigation)
