    Hey seniors and senior families – it is  FAFSA time!  This is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and the first step in getting financial aid for college.  October 1 is the first day applications can be submitted, and you want to make sure you have filed by any deadlines your colleges or any scholarships you are going for list as their FAFSA deadline.  Fortunately, there will be several workshops around Seattle that provide help for you and your family in completing the FAFSA.  Many are on the North End, so should be convenient for RHS students and families.

    Overview of Counseling Office

    The Roosevelt High School Counselors work with students to help them develop strategies for success in academics, in social skills, and in considering their post-high school plans and career options. Counselors challenge students to become aware of their individual strengths, to develop methods for dealing with difficulties, to set goals, to make good choices, and to consider consequences.

    Students are assigned to counselors by the first letter of their last name. Counselors meet with their students to explain the credit system, help students select courses, monitor progress toward achieving graduation requirements, explore interests, and make plans for college application and career options. Counselors also help students deal with social and emotional issues.
