**NOTE:  The "BETTER FAFSA" is now available to students and parents!  


Post-Secondary pursuits may be stressful for both students and parents, so this page is dedicated to information and resources that will help you find your way.  Please feel free to email me or call if you have any trouble navigating the following information.


FAFSA Information

The FAFSA is now OPEN!  Families may use their 2022 tax return to have students fill out the FAFSA to find out if they are eligible for student aid.  The link below is great at showing students how to fill out the FAFSA as well as other financial resources.  For those of you who like to watch videos, there are videos in the link that will walk you through the FAFSA process.   

If you have additional questions, feel free to contact Mrs. Houston or Nebraska EducationQuest at EducationQuest.org or call the Lincoln office: 402-475-5222 or 800-303-3745.  

The FAFSA Demo is made up of six short videos that walk students and parents through each section of the 2024-25 FAFSA.

Post-Secondary Education Costs


SENCAP/Career Academy courses are offered to eligible Junior and Senior students capable of handling a college/high school dual credit course. Southeast Community College will cover 50% of the tuition. Lewiston Consolidated School covers the other 50% of the tuition. Students are responsible for the purchase of all books, materials, and other fees required for the course. Upon approval by administration to enroll in the class, students will be required to pay 50% of the tuition of the class (payable to Lewiston Consolidated School) on the first day of the semester in which the student is enrolled in the class. Upon successful completion of the college portion of the class with a grade of C or better, Lewiston Consolidated School will refund the deposit to the student.

  • Only Juniors and Seniors are eligible to take college courses unless otherwise approved by the administration.

  • Juniors/Seniors will only be allowed 1 class period in their schedule to take a college course.  However, students may take multiple college courses on their own time. 

  • All students need to have taken either the ACT or ACCUPLACER test before enrolling in college courses that require prerequisite scores.  

  • If a student drops/withdraws from the class after the drop/add time period, the school will keep the deposit for the class to cover the cost of the class.

  • Any classes taken in the summer are the responsibility of the student, including the 50% of tuition and books/materials. 

  • College courses will not be counted towards the student’s GPA or credit hours for graduation requirements.  They will not be added to or appear on the student’s transcript.
