Fall for Success & College Goal Saturday

Join us for a community celebration of the Graduating Class of 2018 at New Britain High School -- Saturday October 28 from 12 - 4:00 pm.

The celebration kicks off at 12:00 pm in the NBHS cafeteria with lunch and entertainment. All NBHS seniors and their families are invited to attend this free event! The first 100 NBHS seniors to attend the event will receive a free NBHS Class of 2018 T-shirt, sponsored by the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain.

The celebration continues with College Goal Saturday immediately following in the Media Center. Beginning at 1:00 pm, financial aid professionals and community volunteers will help NBHS seniors and their families fill out their Free Application for Federal Student Aid - the FAFSA - the first step in applying for financial aid for college. NBHS students who receive help with their FAFSA at the event can enter a drawing for prom tickets and yearbooks, generously sponsored by Grace Church.

Workshops and experts will be available to help students learn more about college admissions, financial aid, and applying for scholarships.

College Goal Saturday is open to students from surrounding towns starting at 2:30 pm. All high school seniors who attend College Goal Saturday can enter a drawing for a $250 scholarship provided by CHESLA.
