Seniors: Scholarship Applications

Senior students!  It’s that time of year to begin searching for scholarships to apply for, and taking the time to fill the applications out.  Our Guidance Office is in the process of updating our local scholarships that can be found on our Guidance website.  Please check our website for local scholarships to apply for, and for other scholarships to consider applying for.

Sophomores and Juniors: Spring College & Career Fair

We will be taking a field trip with interested sophomores and juniors to the Spring College and Career Fair, held at the University of Southern Maine, Portland campus, on Wednesday, May 10, 2017.  Over 50 institutions will be attending this fair, and we are offering this as a free event to any interested sophomore or junior student at FHS. More detailed information will be forthcoming, so please stay tuned!

Region 10 Technical High School Visits

Student visits to Region 10 will soon begin!  FHS students have the option of taking the Region 10 bus over to Region 10 Technical High School in either a morning or afternoon session, and visit one or two programs.  This is a great way for students to discover whether a certain program is a good fit.  Any sophomore or junior students interested in visiting a program, or programs, should see Liz Peirce in the guidance office.

The 2017-2018 FAFSA is now available!
File as soon as possible
Filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step to receiving financial aid. The 2017-2018 FAFSA became available on October 1 at FAFSA.gov. We recommend filing your FAFSA as soon as possible.

To complete the FAFSA, all students need an FSA ID--a username and password used to access FAFSA.gov. Additionally, if parent information is required on the FAFSA, one parent will also need his/her own FSA ID.
Have questions about the FSA ID or FAFSA?
We'll guide you through the process
We're hearing lots of questions this year regarding the FSA ID. If you need assistance with your FSA ID or FAFSA, come to one of FAME's free In-Person FAFSA Help sessions. Every session is staffed with a financial aid expert to guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have. Find and register for an event near you:
