Make sure you complete the FAFSA®, in October of each school year, which is the application form you use to request financial aid from the government and from your future college.
You can fill out the form at the government website fafsa.gov, OR you can fill out an easier, more user-friendly version of the form on Going Merry. Both versions are completely free, so we recommend using Going Merry.
How to Use the Going Merry FAFSA Made Easy application:
1.) Click on the Going Merry link above and login to your Going Merry Account (a free account has been created for you, please check your school email address for login information)
2.) Complete the “Onboarding” questions.
3.) Answer “Yes” to the FAFSA question. After several questions, you’ll see a prompt about federal financial aid, then click on the green box “Yes, show me how.”
8/9 – Senior Group Photo
Senior Group Photo will be taken Tuesday morning @ 7:45 AM. Seniors should wear Dress For Success for that picture, but must change into their uniforms immediately following before returning to class. This likely means seniors will be a little late to 1st hour. No sleeveless, short, or low cut dresses. Men must have their hair worn appropriately and be clean shaven. If scholars are out of dress code they will not be in the picture.
