    Dear Parents of 12th Grade Students,

    Your child's high school education is nearing completion. The last few years have certainly been challenging and rewarding as your student progresses academically and personally towards graduation day.

    For many families, higher education is the next step of their journey. But with the stresses of the college application process and trying to figure out financial aid, you and your student are most likely begining to feel a little overwhelmed.

    Fortunately, help is available. In cooperation with the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA), we will be hosting a free Financial Aid Nigh for students and families on October 19th,2019

    Participants will learn how to apply for all types of financial air, including completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is required to determine eligibility for most student aid programs such as the Pennsylvania State Grant, Federal Pell Grant, institutional awards, and federal student and parent loans.

    Participants will also be briefed on Pennsylvania-specific air programs, as well as the importance of minimizing student loan debt and applying for grants and scholarships to help pay for education costs.

    A student aid expert from PHEAA will be available to provide information and answer questions.

    Upcoming Financial Aid Night Event

    Date: Saturday, October 19,2019

    Time: 9:00am

    Location: HAHS Library

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    John Samoyedny and Megan Davis
