FAFSA Night at Horizon Draws Big Crowd of Seniors, Parents
November 10th, 2016
On Thursday evening, Seniors at Horizon Science Academy Columbus High School streamed into the school to learn about the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, which awards students with grants and loans to help pay for college.
Alongside their parents, the students were treated to a buffet dinner as they socialized. After dinner and a few remarks from teachers and staff members, our Head of College Counseling, Mrs. Aykan, guided everyone through the ins and outs of the online form. The evening closed with a raffle for fun prizes, though the real prize was the knowledge and access to completing the FAFSA, a hugely important step in our students’ paths toward a higher education.
