Student Services
Senior Student and Parent Night
Counselors held a large group evening presentation for senior students and their parents on Wednesday, September 11. A discussion of the college application process and an overview of financial aid/scholarships took place.  The handout given out that evening can be found in the following link:   https://www.huhs.org/academics/programs.cfm

If you are a student whose plans do not include the completion of a college application and have questions regarding post-secondary options, please feel free to make an appointment with your counselor.  
ACT Testing
All students considering a two or four-year college experience are reminded to take the ACT test during their junior year. Students can register for the ACT at www.actstudent.org . When registering, students will need the HUHS school code, which is 500-850.  Please remember to check the website to see if the college(s) your son or daughter is considering requires or recommends the ACT writing test.  The test fee for the ACT is $52.00 and the ACT with Writing is $68.00.  If you feel you cannot afford the test fee, please ask your child’s counselor if you are eligible for a fee waiver. 

HUHS is an ACT test center for most testing dates. The test dates for the 2019-20 school year are:

October 26, 2019                           December 14, 2019                       February 8, 2020 (NOT at HUHS)            
April 4, 2020                                  June 13, 2020                                July 18, 2020

Note:  Please keep in mind all juniors are required by state law to take the ACT at the high school on March 3 (no cost to the student on March 3).   When considering whether or not to sign up to take the February 8 or April 4 ACT, it may be best for students to take the March 3 test, then decide whether or not to retake the test in June or July based upon March results.


National College Fair
The National College Fair will be held on Sunday, October 6, at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee. The fair runs from 12:00pm – 3:00pm, will host over 200 colleges, and has free admission. This is an excellent chance to meet with college representatives from around the country.
Go to https://www.nacacfairs.org/ attend/national-college-fairs/milwaukee-national-college-fair/ to receive fair details, avoid lines onsite, and share contact information with your choice schools. 


Wisconsin College Fair
The Wisconsin Education Fair is coming to Arrowhead High School on Tuesday, October 15, from 6:00pm – 8:00pm.  Over 100 different colleges, universities, technical schools, trade schools, and military representatives are available to provide information to interested students.   Go to http://www.wefs.org to register for a bar code that allows you to speak longer to a representative and not have to fill out any of the information cards at the table.


College Application Tip
  Save the speech. Tell the tale.  No need to stress out about the college application essay or be nervous if you think of it as a conversation or a story about yourself. You aren’t giving a speech to thousands of people but someone in the Admissions Office who really wants to hear it!   The essay is a story that means something to you and if you are able to convey that meaning to Admissions, you’ve done the job.
 
If you’d like help with your college essay, English teachers are available in the Writing Center during 5 th and 6 th period Flex Tuesday through Thursday.  Ms. Yu is available during Resource   in the Writing Center Tuesday through Friday.
