Cash For College Family Night


THIS YEAR'S CASH FOR COLLEGE DATE IS TUESDAY, JANUARY 19, 2016! 

Every year, the college center holds a financial aid night for students and their families. All seniors and parents are encouraged to attend to receive information about FAFSA and DREAM applications and how to pay for college tuition. At the end of our presentation, we will move to computers to complete financial aid applications with one-on-one assistance. YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS EVENT!! 

 

Attending SOTA's College Center Events


SOTA's college center has great representatives from a variety of universities coming to campus. These events are open to Academy students as well, but you must get permission from the teacher you have after lunch to attend the event. Because our lunch times don't exactly match up, you would be late to your class after lunch. 

To get an idea of which colleges are coming to SOTA and Academy, visit this link: http://www.sfsota.org/college-center-calendar
