Welcome to the High School portion of Groveton ISD's Counselor Corner! I am Krystle Page and I am the High School Counselor for Groveton ISD. This is my tenth year at Groveton ISD (I've taught at both the high school and elementary campuses), and my third year as a counselor. I am very blessed to call Groveton home and raise my children as Groveton Indians.
As the school counselor, I work with students, teachers, and parents to ensure that all of our students are socially and academically successful. I periodically send out newsletters (which are posted below) to students and you are welcome to subscribe to them as well. Communication is very important as we work together to help our students succeed. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at email@example.com or 936-642-1473 ext 8119.
Newsletters so far 2023-2024:
This newsletter has lots of information about FAFSA, applying for college/trade school, applying for scholarships, testing (SAT, etc.), and much more!
This newsletter has information on getting involved here at GHS, information on testing, and more!
This newsletter is from the previous school year, but it has useful information about earning high school credit, graduation requirements, college readiness exams, etc.
Beginning with the 2021-2022 school year, the State of Texas requires all students to either complete FAFSA or TAFSA, OR complete a waiver in order to graduate high school. The 2024-2025 FAFSA application will be delayed this year and won't be available until December 2023.
FAFSA "Parent Night" at Groveton ISD will be sometime in December 2023.
Seniors have access to a Google Classroom specifically for Scholarships that I update weekly as scholarships are found or become available for the appropriate year.
Going Merry is a free tool students can utilize to help them complete FAFSA and/or search for many scholarships.
