Villagers with kids in high school definitely need to make themselves familiar with the Hendricks College Network. Villagers themselves who are interested in continuing their education or learning new job skills should also check them out.
As with They're Our Kids, the Hendricks College Network has its roots in Leadership Hendricks County. Since 1998, the Hendricks College Network has existed to assess and address the post-secondary educational needs of Hendricks County adults and kids.
The Hendricks College Network goes around to each Hendricks County public high school and offers FAFSA Days, helping students and parents with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). They also offer a huge list of available scholarships, along with several other services.
