Good afternoon.

    Wednesday, January 20, 2021 is the start of Semester 2.  Our daily schedule has changed!  Please see our social media or the Semester 2 presentation under the Parents Tab on our website for the full schedule.

    The schedule change request form is also posted under the parents tab.  We have mailed student schedules and the school daily schedule and these should arrive by this Tuesday.

    Again, the daily schedule is on our website and you can see your student’s schedule on Powerschool.

    As you know, we are NOT starting semester 2 face to face.  All high schools are moving to very similar schedules and increasing the daily and weekly amount of instructional time.  Please encourage your student to log on to first block Wednesday, January 20th at 10am.

    Also, Virtual School requests are still being accepted.  If you want your student to be remote for the rest of the school year and to be taught by Northeast teachers, please go to gcsnc.schoolmint.net to complete your application today.  Need help?  Call us or scroll down and see my easy-to-follow SchoolMint instructions!

    Thank you.

    FAFSA, NC Countdown to College 2020 Events

    FAQs on FAFSA:
    1) What is the "FAFSA" and how is it used?
    The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the form that determines eligibility for state and federal financial aid to cover higher education expenses.
    2) Where does the student data in the Finish the FAFSA database report come from?
    The NC Department of Public Instruction provides a list of the seniors for each participating high school. Each senior’s name, date of birth, home address, and school code are matched with his or her FAFSA status from the U.S. Department of Education’s office of Federal Student Aid. Information reflected in the database includes: not submitted, submitted, completed, signed by student and parent, and whether chosen for verification.
    3) What do schools do with this information?
    School counselors who work with seniors can monitor their students who have or have not completed the FAFSA. They can advise seniors about correcting FAFSA errors or how to complete verification.
    4) Is there a risk to student privacy?
    No income information is included in the Finish the FAFSA database. No Social Security numbers are included either. Access to the database is guided by regulations to safeguard student data and only authorized users at each school can access that school’s student data. Parents can opt-out so that student information does not appear in the Finish the FAFSA database.
    5) Can I share student data that I find in the Finish the FAFSA report?
    Student-level data is protected by federal law and must not be shared with anyone other than the student or parent, and other authorized personnel at the school.
    • The data should never be shared with other students.
    • Sharing student data from one school with authorized personnel at another school is prohibited because authorization is school-specific.
    • Sharing student data within the school with unauthorized personnel at the same school is prohibited.
    • Authorized personnel have been designated by the school district administration.
    • Access has been granted only to those school staff, and/or to other persons from federally designated entities, such as GEAR UP, who work directly with seniors on FAFSA completion and college access.
    Each participating school district signs a Data Use Agreement requiring the protection of student data and limitation of use of the data for intended purposes only.
    6) Where is Finish the FAFSA?
    Education professionals who are Authorized Users access Finish the FAFSA in the Professional Tools on CFNC.org.
    7) Where do I get more information?
    The North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority (NCSEAA) is a state agency that helps North Carolinians pay for education. Contact Outreach@ncseaa.edu with questions or to request a Data Use Agreement for your school.

    FAFSA help can be found at CFNC:  888/737-9321.

    Students/Seniors applying to college will need to establish NC Residency.  This is what enables them to receive the in-state tuition rate! Visit https://ncresidency.cfnc.org/residencyInfo/ and click 'Complete Residency Determination'.  Here's a video on HOW to do it!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEvHIod7VSk&feature=youtu.be

    The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a form completed by current and prospective college students to determine their eligibility for student financial aid.  The time to do this is your senior year in high school but will need to be completed for each year of college, too.

    The FAFSA should not be confused with the CSS Profile, which is also required by some colleges (primarily private ones). The CSS is a fee-based product of the College Board and is usually used by the colleges to distribute their own institutional funding rather than federal or state funding.

    FAFSA & RDS go together like macaroni and cheese! Prepare to apply to college by completing both. Learn how to avoid the Top 10 FAFSA mistakes and what you need to establish North Carolina Residency. Financial aid administrators and Residency Determination Service experts will be on hand for live chat, resources will be offered specifically to your questions, and a short presentation every 15 minutes will help in case you don’t even know what to ask.

    • Thursday, 10/15/20 from 11:00 - 1:00 PM - REGISTER


    After the FAFSA, but before your first day on campus, you need Financial Aid 101. What is an award letter? You had to report your 2019 income on the FAFSA you just filed; what if your household situation has changed in 2020? And what if you are selected for verification? Financial aid administrators will be on hand for live chat, resources will be offered specifically to your questions, and a short presentation every 15 minutes will help in case you don’t even know what to ask.

    • Tuesday, 10/27/20 from 9:00 - 11:00 AM - REGISTER

    • Wednesday, 10/28/20 from 4:00 - 6:00 PM - REGISTER


    Filling out the FAFSA can be intimidating, especially to people who are new to it.  With that in mind, "Money Matters:  FAFSA 101" is coming every Thursday in October from 6 to 7 p.m.  FACEBOOK.COM/UNCGFINANCIALAID/LIVE.  Join the UNCG Financial Aid office live for this fabulous event!

    Each week will cover a new topic.  Session dates:

    November is Native American Heritage Month!  Guilford County Schools have a few things going on to be aware of, all linked individually:

    Khan Academy is a free test practice site, and it's quite fabulous.  Their section on the SAT is sensational.  As students work through practice questions, Khan can actually discern where the student's weak areas are and identify them - which is exactly what you want.  Focusing on the weak areas will allow for the best point gain.  Check it out!  https://www.khanacademy.org/sat 

    Now - that being said - many colleges are waiving the SAT (and the ACT) right now.  So, check with your top colleges/universities of preference (ask to be connected to the Admissions Office), and they'll tell you if they require it if it'll help your chances of getting in, etc.

    On-campus Senior Portraits will take place on October 30th and November 2nd from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm.  You must sign up for an appointment slot to take your photos.  Spots are limited.  This is NOT a RETAKE session for students who took their photos at the off-campus location.  This is only for students who have not taken their photos at all.  Students should wear their casual outfit.  Drapes and Tuxedos will be provided for the formal photos.  Please contact Ms. Felder with any questions or concerns (felderj@gcsnc.com).  Sign up for your appointment here:  https://bit.ly/3mXUMVa

    ETSU is waiving the application fee for North Carolina students!  As you may have already seen, their out-of-state tuition for NC students has been adjusted down to $10,500 per year (border counties still receive the in-state rate).  Students can apply for free by going to etsu.edu/apply and using the application code ncbucs21.  ETSU is also test-optional, which means we will rely solely on their high school transcripts to deliver a decision.  You can still submit their test scores for scholarship purposes.  Here is a video (1 minute and 45 seconds) about ETSU: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJqZcILm2GM 



    Virtual showcase of HBCUs on Mondays and Wednesdays 6 to 9 p.m. starting October 5.  Register at www.pridgeoneventmanagement.

    Since 1958, Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) has provided transformative leadership development training that has positively impacted the lives of over 600,000 high school sophomores in the U.S. and abroad.  Northeast has been invited to nominate at least one sophomore to attend The State Leadership Seminar.  Students will spend 3–4 exciting days exploring leadership from an individual, group, and societal perspective while collaborating with students from throughout the state.  Students return from HOBY with a new sense of self-awareness and an elevated confidence in their individual potential.  They will be inspired to make a positive impact in their schools and communities and will be equipped with the leadership skills to enable action.  Read more about HOBY at https://www.hoby.org/state-leadership-site/?statename=NORTH%20CAROLINA&state=NC and let me know of your interest by October 16.  The seminars students will attend will take place between April and June 2021 with plans for both in-person and virtual attendance as local conditions mandate. 
    Summer 2021 Programs
    Summer Pre-College Programs at Carnegie Mellon
    For over 100 years, Carnegie Mellon has offered students unique and hands-on educational programs from the fine arts to technology and everything in between. Through the Carnegie Mellon Pre-College Program, rising juniors and seniors in high school have the opportunity to experience this world-class education.

    Mirroring the undergraduate experience, our Pre-College program gives students the opportunity to explore their interests while receiving instruction from acclaimed Carnegie Mellon faculty and staff. Students will also participate in a robust outside of the classroom experience.

    Our summer Pre-College program options for summer 2021 are listed below. Due to the ongoing considerations related to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are preparing plans should we be required to alter the delivery of our programs:

    Please note that our Summer Academy for Math and Science (SAMS) program curriculum and delivery method has been changed. SAMS updates are now listed on the program page linked below. 
    • Summer Session, students take two full-length Carnegie Mellon courses in a variety of disciplines, ranging from Computer Science, History to Music Technology.
    • Summer Academy for Math and Science, provides students from underrepresented communities the opportunity to achieve skills to pursue and complete majors in STEM fields.
    • Computer Science Scholars, provides students who are from traditionally underrepresented communities in the field of computer science an opportunity to receive exposure to computing and additional computer science pre-requisites. 
    • AI4All @ Carnegie Mellon, provides opportunities for students from underrepresented communities to study artificial intelligence with full-time faculty, staff and researchers who are leaders in the field.
    • National High School Game Academy, for students who want to learn about modern video game development through a unique blend of left- and right-brain college-level work.
    • Computational Biology, a three-week program for students looking to learn more about the intersection of the two disciplines.
    • Unique programs in the Fine Arts - ArchitectureArtDesignDrama or Music – in which the students experience developing their skills in a conservatory or studio setting.
    • Writing & Culture, guided by the mentorship and instruction of our highly distinguished, permanent faculty members, students will improve their ability to analyze complex, ever-changing problems through astute investigations of culture and society.

    If you have any questions, please contact us.
