Tips & Tools

Community Service:

By the time you graduate, you will need to have logged 10 hours of community service that was completed within the four years you were at Heritage. You may start logging these hours now. Check out the "Resources" tab to the left and select "Community Service." There, you will see some suggestions for where you could complete service hours. Be sure to print a community service form, get it signed by your non-parent supervisor, then turn the form into your counselor.

Remember, most anything that is non-paid, non-required, and takes place outside of the school day may count toward your community service requirement.


It's never too early to start thinking about your future. Not sure what you want to do once you graduate? Use Xello to research careers and find out what skills/degrees are needed to acquire that type of job. Click the "College" tab on the left to view more details on Xello. Counselors are utilizing this tool on a regular basis via classrooms on Wednesdays and in individual counseling meetings with students and parents. 


Did you know that you can start applying for college scholarships right now? View the "scholarships" tab on the left to visit links to nationwide scholarship search engines to begin searching for applicable scholarships today. We also suggest following these organizations on Twitter to get the most up-to-date scholarship opportunities.
