Hope Scholarship Information
The preliminary HOPE transcript upload has been completed. If your student has a Social Security Number (SSN) on file with Whitefield Academy, you will now be able to see your student’s “HOPE” GPA in their student account at gafutures.org. If you haven’t set up a Georgia Futures account, go ahead and set up a student account. You’ll need your student's SSN to do so.
If you are interested in knowing more about the HOPE and Zell Miller Scholarship programs, please go to gafutures.org. If we do not have your student’s SSN, you can share it with us using the Whitefield website via the Parent Portal. Just below the 4 squares on your home page is a place where you can provide us this information.
The next upload of transcripts will be in June.

College Counseling Video Series
In January, we met via zoom with each class to talk about upcoming dates as well as information relevant to their college process. We will share all of the details of our class meetings with parents through short videos that will be posted on Schoology throughout the spring. These videos will be topic based and you'll be able to watch and re-watch at a time that works well with your schedule! Check out the resources section of the College Counseling Resources - Parents Group on Schoology to see those videos!
