Financial Aid/Scholarships

Financial Aid/Scholarships

AMCHS Scholarship Portal - it's moved to Xello! Log into your Xello account and click on "college planning" and then "scholarships." See Ms. Walter in the counseling office with questions! 

AMCHS students received over $7 million  in scholarships in 2021.

We recommend that students not pay for financial aid/scholarship finder services. There are so many free resources out there you don't need to pay someone to find what you can find on your own. Right here is a great place to start!
