Frequently Asked Questions
1) How can I check my student's grades?
 Delphos St. John's uses a system called "ProgressBook".  All students should have their login information.  If you do not have the login information for "ProgressBook", please speak with Mr. Jeff Bockey (419-692-5371) or send him an email ([email protected])
 2) How many days is my student allowed to take for a college visit?
We hope that a student would be able to visit campus and/or military during the summer, weekends or non-school days.  However, we realize that this isn't always possible. Please refer to page 24 in the handbook for a description of when and how visits should be arranged.
3) When should my son/daughter begin applying for college? 
All senior students should begin applying for college in the fall.  Begin taking college visits in the spring of the year prior to your senior year.  Continue taking college visits in the fall.  Narrow your choices down to two or three, and then begin applying for your colleges.  Pay close attention to the application deadlines.  All schools have different deadlines.
4) Does my daughter/son take the ACT or the SAT test?
 Students in this area generally take the ACT test.  Almost every school in the mid-west will accept results from the ACT test.  It is always good to check with the colleges you are interested in to see what tests they require.
5) When should my son/daughter take the ACT test?
Students should strongly consider taking the ACT late winter or spring of their Junior year.  Students should also consider taking the test more than once.  Studies have indicated that 55% of students who take the test a second time improve their score. Students may continue taking the test in the fall of their senior year.  
6) What is the writing portion of the ACT test?
It is an optional 30-minute essay test that measures writing skills emphasized in high school English classes and in entry level college composition courses.  Taking the writing test does not affect students' scores on the multiple-choice tests or their Composite score.  The student will receive two additional scores: a Combined English/Writing score on a scale of 1-36 and a Writing sub score on a scale of 2-12.  The writing portion of the test in not required. 
7) When is the next ACT test?
8)  What scholarships are available for my son/daughter?
There are many scholarships available nationwide through sources like FastWeb.com and others.  However, the competition for those scholarships is very competitive and also involves students throughout the entire  United States.  Local scholarships that are available to students can be found in their Naviance Account
9) What is the FAFSA that I hear about?
This is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.  This is the application that you fill out to apply for financial aid from the government.  Applying for federal student aid is FREE; There are a lot of scams out there that are asking you to pay.  NEVER pay when you fill out the FAFSA.  If you need help filling out the FAFSA, that help is free also.  Please avoid all scams by never giving out credit card information, never paying a fee, or giving out bank information.
10) What other financial aid help is available for college?
All college bound students must fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  This application can not be filled out until after October 1st.  This is the date it becomes available online.  The priority deadline for most colleges is December 1st.  After filling out the FAFSA, you will be notified of your expected family contribution (EFC).  The EFC is a measure of your family's financial strength and indicates how much of your family's financial resources should be available to help pay for your education.  The EFC is calculated from the information you report on the FAFSA.  There are three categories of federal student aid: grants, work study and loans.  Grants = financial aid that doesn't have to be repaid.  Work study = allows you to earn money for your education.  Loans = allow you to borrow money for your education.  You must repay your loans, with interest.  We hold a Financial Aid Night each year for parents to assist them in completing the FAFSA and to gain knowledge of other opportunities to fund your son/daughter's education.  This meeting generally takes place in October.
11) Who is my child's school counselor?
Delphos St. John's has two counselors, Mrs. Stephanie Hanneman and Mrs. Lynette Haehn.  Both are available by phone (419-692-5371) or email ([email protected], [email protected])
12) What are the actual duties of the school counselor?
The more important question is "How are the students different because of what our school counselors do?"  Our mission is to facilitate each student's personal/social, academic and career development through the counselors' delivery of guidance and counseling activities as well as through a collaborative effort between the home, school and community.  The ultimate objective is to help students identify their interests and abilities, promote dependability, self-expression and control, accurate decision making and conflict resolution skills.  We are trying to make the students more productive citizens and able to participate in a global society as responsible citizens.
13) Does my son/daughter need an appointment to see the counselor?
No, however the counselors are quite busy and may be out of the office at any time.  If a counselor is not in their office when your child stops by, the student should let Mrs. Hershey in the office know. She will leave a note for the counselor to see that student ASAP.  As soon as the counselor returns to their office, they will call your son or daughter down.  If the school counselor is in the office, they will stop whatever they are doing to make time for your child.
