Parkview A+ Program Highlights
A+ Advisory Board students host monthly Tall Trojan Tours for Jarrett Middle School. These tours are sponsored by the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks and allow our future Vikings to see firsthand all the wonderful opportunities Parkview High School has to offers.

- Assist with summer freshman focus, orientation and family fair activities

Parkview A+ Program
Beginning with the 2017-2018 FAFSA application cycle, the FAFSA will have a new launch date of October 1 rather than the traditional launch date of January 1. This earlier date of October 1 will allow the financial aid process to coincide with the college admissions process. Along with the new launch date, the FAFSA's tax year information collected from an applicant will come from one tax year earlier, otherwise known as prior-prior year. Applicants will use their tax year 2015 income information for the 2017-2018 award year.
