News & Events

SENIORS: Do not miss this free-money opportunity!  Last year, scholarships awarded to Class of 2022 seniors totaled nearly $95,000. For more than 30 years, generous Simsbury businesses, organizations, clubs, and families have contributed to scholarships for Simsbury High School students.  These awards are only for SHS seniors; criteria include financial need, merit, athletics, outside interests, civic engagement, and community service. Just one application is required for consideration for all scholarships. We encourage all seniors to apply. 

The 2022 Local Scholarship Application is now available and will close on February 24, 2023.  

Here is the link to apply.  This is through your Google account with SHS.  https://forms.gle/NVQr8aYP16Fr2chaA


 

PSAT Scores
Juniors have been given information in their English classes on how to access their PSAT scores via www.collegeboard.org. Please do not try to access scores without your student, as it is important not to create duplicate accounts if students have created one in the past. 


SAT Prep Course
The SAT prep company College Planning Partnerships is offering four sections of interactive online SAT classes for Simsbury High School juniors:

Section A: January 17 through March 16, Tue/Thu from 3:30-4:45 
Section B: January 17 through March 16, Tue/Thu from 6:30-7:45 
Section C: January 23 through March 20, Mon/Wed from 3:30-4:45
Section D: January 23 through March 20, Mon/Wed from 6:30-7:45

College Planning Partnership has seasoned instructors who utilize the online Desmos platform to quickly analyze what questions the classes are finding difficult and to drill down on those difficult topics. The multiple course sections provide flexibility for students to jump into another class if students can't attend their normal class time. Classes are also recorded so that students can go back and review portions of the class, or use it as a makeup. 

Last year, SHS students who took this eight-week, interactive online SAT Class improved their scores by an average of 105 points from the PSAT to the SAT. 

 Simsbury students can sign up for this class at a discounted rate of $499 (reduced from $695) by using the following promo code: SHS2023.  The course includes: 20 hours of SAT Prep, the College Board’s The Official SAT Study Guide and CPP’s SAT Study Manual.
