DVHS’s College & Career Center, centrally located next to the Main Office, offers resources and workshops to help all students explore college and career opportunities.
Students have access through the Center to a growing library of catalogs and materials, scholarship and financial aid information, computer software programs on college and career options, assistance with resume/cover letter writing, and self-assessment tests that help DVHS students better determine their skills and interests.
The College & Career Center also coordinates the schedule of visits made by college admissions officers, publishes frequent scholarship notices, keeps a log of local jobs and internship of interest and available to high school students, and handles military information.
The College & Career Center is open Mondays through Fridays from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm unless closed for a planned event or meeting. Students may visit before or after school and during their lunch period. Contact through email is also encouraged and our webpage will be updated regularly with useful information for students of every grade.
I look forward to seeing you soon!
For all students and families, but in particular our 9-11th graders, please join us for a College Funding Coach Workshop on February 1st at 6 pm in DVHS' College & Career Center. CFC is a non-profit who provides families with the financial 'how-to's' of getting to college. To RSVP and for more information, please click here.
For our Senior families, if you want ANY type of financial aid (scholarships, grants, student work study or loans) from the Federal & State governments and the college you attend, you MUST complete the FAFSA! This is a free form that is used across the U.S. by the Educational Offices of the government as well as colleges to give you financial aid for educational programs.
The FAFSA should be completed by February 1st for the optimal award package.
We will be holding a Financial Aid/Cash for College Workshop on January 19th at 6 pm in the DVHS Library. At that time, we will go over the types of Financial Aid available to students and the FAFSA form. Computers will be on hand for you to complete the FAFSA at this time. Please see the attached flyer for more information and what to bring. You can RSVP to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or through this online form.
