Mission Statement: to give students help and guidance to rise above adversity and achieve their full potential.

Testing - Every Junior must take a college entrance exam. These are what colleges use to determine your acceptance and placement for post-secondary education. We are providing the Compass to the Juniors that attend LHS at no cost to students. If a student wants to take the ACT we will provide a waiver for the fees, however, it is up to the student to attend and take the test.

We recently compiled a comprehensive List of Online Colleges by State. Students can select Idaho and view helpful information about local colleges, including annual tuition, recommend rate, and location. This free, online resource is ideal for prospective students who are considering online education but are also interested in local reputation or nearby campus support services.
Financial Helps - Once you decide what you want to do and where you want to go, it is time to look at how you can afford to get there.
Free Application for Federal Student Aid - www.fafsa.ed.gov FAFSA is the form required by the federal government for students seeking federal aid.
Scholarships - look around, you may find a scholarship that will work for you. It never hurts to apply. You never know what will happen. Be cautious of websites that have you pay a fee, give you a money back guarantee, want credit card/bank information, or offer exclusive information. Scholarship information should not cost anything to obtain.
