Effingham Community Schools’ mission is to provide a quality, competitive education to students so that they thrive, not only academically but socially and emotionally, as well as physically.

The school prides itself on maintaining rigorous academic standards while promoting accountability and personal responsibility, and it also strives to maintain a safe, nurturing environment.
It is hoped that students who are challenged academically will begin to take responsibility for learning and develop a love of learning that will carry them through the rest of their lives. This will also lead to engagement in the world around them, so that they become responsible citizens who are equipped to improve their own lives as well as their communities.

Chalk Talk: Financial Aid
The financial aid application process begins with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, which can be filled out online beginning in January. Colleges then base their awards packages on the information they receive from the FAFSA. Competitive students may also be offered scholarships, called merit scholarships. These are usually determined by the colleges and don’t require applications, but it’s a good idea to contact financial aid departments to make sure you aren’t missing any opportunities. Similarly, there may be scholarships based on other demographic factors that students may not be aware of (and that colleges may not be aware students qualify for) so, again, be sure to contact financial aid departments for advice. Most colleges will have a student aid package calculator on their website which can help determine the value of a student’s award; likewise, they will have information on aid such as scholarships and grants a student might be eligible for.
