Students should call the Admissions Office at the college of their choice to make an appointment at least two weeks in advance. It is advisable to also set up an appointment with a professor in the student’s desired field on the day of the college visit, and possibly a financial aid officer. St. Henry District High School strongly encourages parents to attend the campus visit with their child whenever possible. The following guidelines must be followed for college visits taken during the school year:

  • A student is allowed three visits on or during school days. Students may visit as much as they like on days off or weekends. After three school-day visits, the student will take an unexcused absence.
  • If a visit is during the school day, the counselor must receive at least a one-week notice and the appropriate permission slip allowing the student to make the visit. Click here for a copy of the permission slip.
  • An official acknowledgement of the visit from the college needs to be given to the school counselor when the student returns the next school day.
  • The student must have the college acknowledge the visit on official college stationery – including the date and the student’s name.
  • Only three students are permitted to go on a college visit on a given day.
  • No student will be permitted out of school for a college visit after April 15th.
  • The high school administration may waive any of the above requirements in special situations.
The counselors keep all scholarships listed on this page for your reference throughout the year. The deadline date and criteria will be updated when we receive the new applications for the 2019-2020 school year. You can also pull up the most current information if a website is listed. Please feel free to call a counselor at 859.525.5844 with any questions. Pick up more information and applications in the Guidance Office or pull up the information and application online. Watch those deadlines!

Keep a copy of all scholarships you are offered. In the spring, the Guidance Department will request a copy of all offers for our records and for recognition at the Senior Awards Ceremony.

Be sure to always check with the financial aid office at your college of choice for any scholarships or funding that may be available to you. Click on the websites listed below for direct access to their financial aid/scholarship pages.

KEES brochures are available in the Guidance Department. The KEES award is available to all St. Henry students who obtain a grade point average of 2.5 or higher and are residents of the state of Kentucky. Students attending certified Kentucky high schools can earn scholarships based on their grade point average (GPA) for each year of high school and bonus awards based on their highest ACT score achieved before graduating from high school. Students must attend an eligible Kentucky post-secondary institution to receive the funds. To be eligible for a KEES yearly award, a student must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen, national or permanent resident
  • Be a Kentucky resident

Students must have an annual 2.5 or higher GPA for the base amount of the scholarship and a 15 or above ACT score or equivalent SAT score for the bonus award. Students must qualify for at least one base award in order to receive the bonus award. There is no application to complete. The Guidance Department at St. Henry District High School is required to submit all pertinent information to the state of Kentucky in June of each year. Note: To keep the full award during the college years, the student must have at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA at the end of the freshmen year. Following this adjustment period, a student must achieve and maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA to keep the full KEES award. Anything below these cumulative GPAs will result in lesser monies received for the following award period. The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority usually mails letters out by September each year notifying students of their award status. For more information on the KEES Program or the student’s award go to www.kheaa.com. Students will need to register and create a User ID and password to access their information.
