Attleboro High School

ATTLEBORO — Attleboro High School is hosting a free workshop on filing college financial aid forms.

The workshop is scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m. on Jan. 31 in the school library.

The event is open to families of seniors at all area high schools, including those from Attleboro, Bishop Feehan, North Attleboro, Seekonk and Norton.

Attleboro High was one of several selected across the state as a host of the 12th annual FAFSA Day Massachusetts workshops. FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

Julie Little, director of guidance at Attleboro High, said school officials decided a couple of years ago to try to become a host site, rather than send families to schools out of the area.

She said four financial aid experts from schools such as Bristol Community College and Providence College will be on hand to help families fill out the forms that are required for applying for aid.

Translators to help Spanish and Portuguese speakers will also be in attendance.

Families can register by going to FAFSADay.org.

Thirty workshops will be held across the state on Jan. 31 and Feb. 21.

FAFSA Day is a non-profit program sponsored by Massachusetts Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, MEFA, American Student Assistance, and USA Funds. Over 14,000 students have been served during FAFSA Day events.

The organization encourages parents of high school seniors and especially low-income families to attend.
