AZ GEAR UP developed the Senior “Launch” Guide as a practical resource for teachers, parents, and counselors to help high school seniors navigate the many unfamiliar steps required senior year to ‘launch’ successfully into their chosen life after graduation. The Guide includes clear, concise checklists for students based on their postsecondary plan (4-year university, 2+2 transfer plan, community college, technical school, military or workforce). The Guide also includes helpful information and forms for completing the FAFSA, applying for scholarships and jobs, selecting and applying to colleges, and more.
Two versions are available for download below – a pdf version that can be printed and written in, and a fillable version intended for download but not for printing.
We sincerely hope to hear from school counselors, administrators, teachers, students and parents who use the Guide, about the ways it was used and what worked best. We would also like any feedback on how the Guide could be made better. Please send any feedback and ideas about the Guide to firstname.lastname@example.org.
