Professional School Counseling, v12 n6 p471-479 Aug 2009
High school students seeking to complete a postsecondary degree must properly prepare themselves academically and financially in order to qualify and pay for college. With the use of data, school counselors can target high-achieving students from diverse backgrounds to provide equitable opportunities for all students. In this article, a school counselor along with partners from the school district and local university discuss how school counselors at a high school were able to increase academic and funding opportunities for college-bound students from low-income households. Interventions included enrolling target students in academically challenging courses and advising students in applying for financial aid and scholarships. (Contains 3 figures.)
