Applying for Financial Aid

Many APS students would most assuredly qualify for federal money to continue their education after high school if they'd just fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) . APS wants to see more students apply for federal student aid, which is awarded based on financial need.

High school college and career counselors are hosting workshops to help students and their families fill out the online application. The workshops will be held at APS high schools during the spring semester. Many of the workshops will have Spanish speakers.
