Torrington High School was selected to take part in the Connecticut governor’s FAFSA Challenge - a program whose purpose is to increase FAFSA completion rates of high school seniors across the state of CT by 5%.
THS's goal is to have at least 105 seniors complete the FAFSA - a goal that they have already reached. But the school is hoping to get the FAFSA completion rate back up to the pre-COVID percentage, which is around 65%, or 130 of this year's seniors.
THS received a micro-grant through this program to establish programs to increase FAFSA completion rates and to help encourage seniors to complete their FAFSA.
Why complete the FAFSA??
