How is financial aid applied to student accounts?


Malvern High School no longer publishes college and scholarship search engines to sites not affiliated with the Arkansas Department of Education, the Arkansas Department of Higher Education, or the United States Department of Education. Students and parents who have questions about the legitimacy of a college and scholarship search engine may contact Mr. Williams.
