At Robert H. Goddard High School, we believe that exposure to college is one of the best ways to encourage students to become college ready. Beginning in their freshman year, our students at Robert H. Goddard High School are introduced to the collegiate and trade school world through our semiannual college fairs. Throughout the course of the year, our school provides various assemblies for our students ranging from what students will need to do to prepare for admission to college and what they should be aware of once they are college students, to discussing the Importance of the PSAT and the SAT, to discussing the ACCESS program for students with Individualized Educational Plans as well as filing for financial aid. Throughout the course of their junior and senior years, we also offer college trips for all students.
In their Junior year, students are required to meet with Mrs. DeLillo to discuss their post-graduation plans and to focus on the schools that they are planning to apply to. It is at this meeting that the juniors receive assistance in signing up for the SAT through the College Board. Beginning the second week of their senior year, seniors will meet with Mrs. DeLillo to firm up their college application choices and discuss their graduation needs for high school. All seniors will receive a timeline for deadlines for college applications submission as well as filing for financial aid. All students will receive assistance with their applications from Mrs. DeLillo. In late November, Robert H. Goddard High School will host a financial aid night for all parents. After January 1st, seniors can meet with Mrs. DeLillo to assist in filing for financial aid. All parents/guardians are welcomed and encouraged to attend any and all of these meetings.
As a school we encourage all students to look ahead to their future and demonstrate that they are college and career ready. We offer opportunities for our students to earn college credits through opportunities such as Advanced Placement classes or through taking English classes through College Now. Students should also meet these qualifications through any of one of the following ways:
At Robert H. Goddard High School, we believe every student deserves individualized attention to their post-secondary plans. The college office is here to assist the students and their families with all of their concerns, questions and needs throughout your child’s high school education.
