Important information for students and families preparing for college.

On January 30th, at several locations throughout CT, individuals and/or families can receive FREE technical assistance to complete the FAFSA (federal financial aid form). This form is very important for financial assistance and funding for post secondary education.

If you want to receive this technical assistance, please register on the College Goal Sunday flyer link.

If you or a family member needs a bilingual translator or any other special services, contact the site.

Parents - Please do not wait until high school to start discussing continuing education plans and future goals with your children.

"Instilling the value of education and linking school work to future goals is what the middle school age group needs to excel in school, more than parents' helping with homework or showing up at school," say Nancy E. Hill, PhD, of Harvard University.
