Paying for College


We hear it in the news almost every day about the cost of education continuing to rise. At Barton you will find the cost to be half of what it costs to attend a four-year school. A Barton education is affordable, with many options on helping you pay to make your dream a reality.

Scholarships:

Apply for Barton academic scholarships before the March 15 deadline. Barton automatically awards students based on academic achievements, as well as, a student's involvement within activity and performance groups.  For an activity scholarship, please contact respective activity contact person.

Beginning with the 2011-2012 academic school year, students may be eligible to receive both academic and foundation scholarshipsClick here for more infomation and to apply for foundation scholarships.

Another thing we encourage students to do is get involved. From events/activities/organizations within the high school and/or in your community, involvement can assist you with financial needs. From scholarships given by community/civic groups to college scholarships, your involvement and care for others can be a factor on scholarships.

Barton also encourages your participation at the collegiate level.  We offer many scholarships based on your participation in activities, clubs, and student organizations.  For more information on these scholarships, click here.

Visit our Financial Aid web site for more information on the different types of aid that is available.

Federal Financial Aid:

We highly encourage you to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). By filling this out you may be eligible for Federal pell grants, student loans, and/or parent loans.  Link to Federal Financial Aid
