Opportunities provides students and families with important information and tools to guide their pursuit of postsecondary education. Opportunities provides very useful information about the scholarship searches and scams, see pages 19-21 of Opportunities. Copies of the 2015-16 version of Opportunities are available to parents and students, in both English and Spanish in the Guidance office.
