Why you will want to attend the Academy’s Financial Aid Workshop...

Financial Aid - The financial aid process can be involved but beneficial.  To help you through the process, the Academy will have staff on-hand and computers available to help you with:


  • Completion and submission of your FAFSA. 
  • Corrections to your FAFSA which may be required for verification of your financial aid eligibility.
  • Completion of your Financial Aid forms.
We strongly encourage all of our students to complete their 2016-2017 FAFSA as soon as possible to avoid missing any key state grant deadlines.
To make the best use of your time at the workshop, it would be beneficial for you to attempt to complete your Financial Aid forms in advance and bring the completed forms with you that day.  We will review your forms for any required changes and answer any specific questions that you may have.
Benefits of a College Degree - One of the most important decisions in your life.
Career Services - Hear about Alumni success stories and career opportunities.
Meet Classmates - Make new friends.
