The College and Career Center maintains a variety of informational resources, computers for research and reference books that will assist and guide students and parents through the college/career selection process. We encourage students to come to the College and Career Center, use the resources available, and meet with the college representatives who visit us, primarily in the fall. A full list of reps coming to Eaglecrest can be found on Naviance. Naviance:

Transcript Request:EHS Official Transcript requests are available in the College and Career Center for $5. Questions regarding Alumni Transcripts should be directed to the EHS Registrar's office. All graduates before 1983 need to call the district admissions office (720.554.4555) to request a transcript and then pick the transcript up at admissions.Requesting Letters of Recommendation:
Letters of recommendation help complete the application process. Typically college and universities will ask for two letters of recommendation from adults who can speak about the student from an academic, athletic and or artistic perspective. Letters help colleges and universities learn more about the student. Students should consider asking teachers and other adult mentors starting in the spring of the Junior year. Out of courtesy, students should ask their recommendors at least three to four weeks prior to the date in which the letter is needed.
Students can log onto Naviance and fill out the "Letter of Recommendation 2013" forms for teachers and the counselor. Students will fill this out to help the recommendor with information to create the letter.
Standardized Tests: (click to go to the site)
Most colleges and universities require either the ACT or SAT standardized test for students to be considered for admittance. Some colleges and universities will also require the additional writing section. Please check with the individual school requirements for this information. Eaglecrest prepares students for the standardized tests starting with the Explore test in the freshman year, the Plan test in the sophomore year and the practice ACT test the junior year. Starting in the spring of the Junior year, students should be prepared to take the ACT and/or SAT tests. All test information (including TCAP and AP) can be found on the Testing page.
We have compiled a listing of scholarship search engines as well as strategies for applying to scholarships. We have also created an informal list of scholarships available for students to research and apply to. This list is based off information we receive on an ongoing basis. Information about the scholarship and deadlines are also provided. This is not a complete list of all scholarships. Please continue to do additional research to meet your individual needs.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a form required by every college and university to assess a family’s income to determine financial need. The FAFSA is first completed January-March of a student’s high school graduating year, then once every year while the student is attending college.
The Office of Federal Student Aid has put together several short, helpful videos that explain the process. To view an overview video, click here.

Eaglecrest hosts a team every year from College in Colorado Outreach and Access Team who leads a workshop at Eaglecrest on filing your FAFSA. Talk to your counselor about when the workshop will be held your senior year.
