September 18, 2020 — To assist Collinsville High School families in navigating college, scholarships, and financial aid, the CHS Counseling Department put together a video presentation, “College Planning and Financial Aid 101” to explain the various pieces.
The video covers topics the counselors usually discuss in an annual presentation in the CHS Auditorium for parents of juniors and seniors. This year, due to public health restrictions, the presentation has been captured in a video posted on the CHS Counseling Department’s YouTube channel for parents and students to view as needed.
To make navigating the video easier, the counselors included an index of the overall topics and the general time that subject is covered in the the presentation.
For Spanish subtitles, use the CC button in the lower right of the video screen.
