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!
