Why did you choose to work at Flagler?

After being born and raised here, welcoming students into the community I love and helping them reach their goals makes the job all that much more rewarding!

Exploring the parks and trails around the area. ProTip: Go earlier in the morning before the heat sets in and you'll see so much wildlife!

Tip(s) for students applying for Financial Aid

Don't be shy! Reach out to the businesses and organizations in your community for scholarship opportunities. Many places use scholarships as a way to give back to the community, but don't necessarily advertise! Just ask, every little bit makes a difference! The more scholarships you can earn, the less you may need to take out in student loans. A little of your free time now, can greatly reduce your repayments after graduation!

Tip(s) for parents applying for Financial Aid

Get and keep your student involved! Explain how spending a little time applying to scholarships can set them up for both educational and financial success after graduation! This is their entry into the adult world and the best way to aid their financial growth is to let them be involved in the funding of their education. Start teaching them how to budget for everyday expenses, create and build their savings, and show them how to make informed financial decisions. Include your child in financial aid meetings, even if it's a three-way call!
