For Students

Say Yes Guilford helps provide access to college or post-secondary training to students who graduate from the Guilford Country Schools system (GCS). Last-dollar tuition scholarships, supports, and resources are available to all GCS graduates starting with the Class of 2016.

Scholarships

Starting in 2016, GCS graduates will have access to last-dollar tuition scholarships to help pay for college or post-secondary education (certificate programs other than a four-year college or university). Graduates can get support to attend a public college or university in North Carolina, or one of the 100 colleges and universities that are part of the national Say Yes to College Compact.

Supports

​It takes a community to provide supports needed to help students graduate from high school and be successful in their post-secondary educations. Say Yes Guilford will build supports to help students every step of the way, from kindergarten readiness through earning a college degree or certificate.​

Resources

​Say Yes Guilford is here to connect students and families with resources so they can make good decisions about how to finance post-secondary education. Guilford Parent Academy will host a series of workshops that will answer parent questions and help with completing financial aid forms and scholarship applications.​
