Seniors gear up for future with Apply Kansas! Day

Seniors took part in the Apply Kansas! initiative on Wednesday during consumer and personal finance class. Every senior  applied to some form of postsecondary institution or job. The goals of this program are to teach them how to apply, help them with the application process, celebrate all of the paths the students take, help them develop an academic plan for after high school, and educate them about the power of a postsecondary education impacting their employability and lifetime earnings. Though much of this has been done in the past in some form, Apply Kansas! is a more concerted, collaborative effort. Most Kansas institutions waived their application fee in October, so a majority of students were able to apply for free. If students wanted to apply to an institution not in Kansas, they were able to do that as well.
