FHS Seniors Getting a Jump Start on College Applications

Mrs. Luna-Lopez, EAOP College Site Coordinator, hosted a week-long College Readiness Academy on Monday, August 1st through Friday, August 5th for rising Seniors. The participating students got a head start in their college applications: started the UC
Application, drafted their four personal insight questions, received presentations about the four systems of higher education, scholarships, Cal State Apply, Common App, a financial literacy presentation from Ventura County Credit Union, created their FSA ID’s for their FAFSA accounts. They also received mentorship from our former EAOP FHS students, Wendy Carrillo attending Cal Lutheran, Damian Meza attending UCLA, and Marisol Martinez Rojas, who graduated from CSUN with her liberal studies degree and a teaching credential.
