On April 10th, Millis High School Counselors, Mark Awdycki and Erika Warren, handed out the Program of Studies to 8th Grade students and explained the process of course selection for the 2014-15 school year.
On Wednesday, April 9th, Millis High School is partnering with Medway High School to offer a Mini College Fair for students to network with admissions professionals. Students will have a 45 minute block in the morning to come down from their classes to meet with admissions reps from all over the area. We have heard great things over the years about how our students conduct themselves during these fairs so let's keep the tradition alive!
Parents and students are invited to attend a free presentation about paying for college, offered through MEFA, the Commonwealth’s Authority on planning, saving and paying for college. An experienced MEFA representative will provide an overview of the college billing cycle, options for paying the bill and understanding financial aid award letters.
Please join us for the presentation of the recently completed space needs study.
