Parents of the class of 2024:

Thinking about the financial aid process?  The FAFSA is delayed this year and will be available in December for current high school seniors.  To plan ahead, please watch the video below for a virtual session on financial aid, the FAFSA, and how to pay for post secondary education, presented by LEAF.  LEAF will also host a FAFSA filing night in the winter.  Look for more information on this date to come out at the start of second semester.  
Our LEAF representative, Cheryl Suszynski, is at the high school on Thursdays and can also meet with any students who have questions.
