College Tour for Sophomores & Juniors
There are still a few spaces left for Suffield Academy’s college tour with EF/Explore America. Space is limited so please register soon if you are at all interested. Suffield Academy sophomores and juniors have the opportunity to visit eight colleges in New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. during the first week of Spring Break, from March 5-10, 2017. This is a great opportunity for our students to visit many different kinds of schools, learn the college admissions language, and understand the admissions process. This tour is not intended to replace the family college tour experience, but serves to supplement it and to give students an opportunity to see more schools.

Seniors: Now is the Time to Submit Financial Aid Forms
The FAFSA and CSS Profile became available October 1. The FAFSA is the application most colleges use to determine eligibility for federal, state and college-sponsored financial aid. The link to this form is: fafsa.ed.gov. The CSS Profile is the form used for non-federal financial aid for some college and scholarship programs. Not every college requires the CSS Profile so be sure to check each college individually for their requirements. The link to this form is: student.collegeboard.org/css-financial-aid-profile. For priority consideration, complete and submit your financial aid forms as soon as possible.
