The Future Center hosts events that help students meet College Representatives, explore paths for after high-school, as well as provide hands-on work sessions in a variety of topics. The Future Center is also often the place for students to sign-up for special events and communicate key dates. Weekly events are posted outside the Future Center; upcoming events are updated on a white board just inside.

Applying to college and for financial aid and scholarships can feel daunting. We can help.
Scholarships are available through a variety of sources.
The college you plan to attend will have both merit and department scholarships available. The BSHS Future Center compiles a list of national, state, and local scholarships that can be found on the Bend-La Pine School District (BLPS) scholarship list (see link below). Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC) offers 450+ scholarships with one application. National search sites such as Fast Web, and Sally Mae give you the ability to search for thousands of scholarships. Select the "Scholarship List" link below for a list of national, state and local scholarships compiled by all area high schools.
Although undocumented students cannot apply to federal financial aid there
are several financial resources available. Click here for details.
Students can earn credits for participating in these work-based programs. Our school offers several programs including:
Job Search, Available Internships, Resumes, Letters of Introduction, Interviewing Skills
Students interested in a foreign exchange program during high school have many options to consider. Each year our local Rotary Club sends and hosts high school students in their programs. Applications are available in late September for travel in August of the following school year.

Those considering a Gap Year between high school and college can look at these resources:
For students wishing to go straight from high school into the military, a call to one of our local recruiters is the best place to start. Meetings can be set up in the recruiting office or in the Future Center.
ROTC is offered at some colleges and is designed as officer training, while students are going to college. Once selected for a ROTC program most likely you will be offered either a full or partial scholarship. The ROTC department at the school you plan to attend will have detailed information about post-college commitments.
The Academies offer students a very prestigious education, one that is filled with rigor and regimentation. To admission process is arduous, but worth it, if this is the route for you.
