ASPIRE: Access to Student Assistance Programs In Reach of Everyone


The ASPIRE (Access to Student Assistance Programs In Reach of Everyone) program provides resources and individual assistance to students and parents to assist with post-high school education and training as well as military and employment options.  Volunteer mentors assist students with career exploration, college and/or training program identification, SAT & ACT registration, test preparation, admission and scholarship applications and essays, and navigating the financial aid processes.  

ASPIRE is your source for planning for life after high school!


This summer Jill will be keeping in touch with seniors who opted into the Summer ASPIRE program by sending tips, resources and reminders as you transiition to college.

I will be in the office most Tuesdays from 10:30-2:30 – this may vary though due to family commitments.  Please reach out to me ahead of time if you wish to meet.
