Attention Seniors!
The counseling department would like to remind you to please link your counselor as a recommender to either your Coalition or Common App as soon as possible. Linking your counselor will allow your counselor to view deadlines and submit forms. If you link your counselor last-minute, you run the risk of your counselor submitting forms past admission deadlines for some Universities. Thank you.
Class of 2020 Scholarship Opportunity
San Rafael Elks Most Valuable Student Scholarship
The main goal of this scholarship at the   local level   is NOT based on academics, prep scores, or financial need (though if the student goes on to State level they will ask for those) but this scholarship is based on community/school/work involvement so please reach out to any students that you know are very involved in school/sports/hard workers, etc. and who are willing to write a 500 word essay about this (only hard part of the application:)).

Last year we only had TWO applications from SRHS and since the Elks are an SR based Lodge, we REALLY want to see applications come in this year.....
