Complete Your FAFSA Today!

FAFSA stands for Free Application for Student Aid. It is a form that current and prospective college students (undergraduate and graduate) should complete to determine whether they are eligible for grants, loans and work study funds.

Students going to college in 2018 can fill out a new FAFSA application or update their current application by going to:

For the 2018 college school year, students can begin submitting their FAFSA applications as early as October 1, 2017. Yes, this month! So parents and students don’t delay. Get your FAFSA application in early!

For more information, students should speak to their high school guidance counsel about FAFSA or go online to the FAFSA website.


English Student Proficiency Results for 2016 and 2017

About 74% of African-American students are not meeting proficiency standards in English in 2017 in Alameda County and 69% of African-American students are not meeting proficiency standards in English in 2017 statewide. The Math proficiency scores for African-American students are even lower!

These are disturbing results and a call to action that something must be done.

We will be providing more education updates and more information about college to the congregation in the upcoming weeks and months.
