Planning for Your Future

The Ravenwood High School counseling center is here to assist you with your college and career planning needs. Ravenwood focuses intently on the process of preparing for testing and college applications, getting to know your strengths and creative passions, and encouraging you to expand your academic and extracurricular interests to strengthen your college resume.

Complete the student information sheet. This form must be given to your counselor when you need a recommendation.

Please visit to request a transcript. For students who have already graduated or for scholarships or other special situations that require a hard copy of your transcript, please submit a transcript request form in the counseling center.

Seniors are allowed two college visits; juniors are allowed one. To be excused, the student must notify Student Services in writing at least one week prior to the visit. Students are responsible for all work missed. College visits will count as an absence and may affect a senior’s final exam exemption status.

During senior and junior lunch, colleges throughout the year will send a representative to answer questions about their school, the programs they offer, and information about financial aid and admittance. This is a great way to expand the college search and to see if a college is the right fit for you.

Seniors may apply for the Tennessee Promise scholarship, which will provide two years of tuition-free attendance at a community or technical college in Tennessee.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a form that must be prepared annually by current and prospective college students (undergraduate and graduate) in the United States to determine their eligibility for student financial aid. The FAFSA opens October 1st and should be completed as soon as possible. Aid is distributed based on financial need and on a first come, first served basis.
