The Kent School District is showing students they can attend a college or university, despite financial obstacles.

The district is hosting Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA) application events called College Goal Sunday for students and families.  FAFSA is the required financial aid process to become eligible for state and federal grants, many scholarships and the College Bound Scholarship.  Preparing the Pre FASFA information at a College Goal Sunday allows students, parents, and guardians to come in, receive help and complete the FAFSA online. As an extra incentive, attending a College Goal Sunday event means students are eligible to win $500 at a scholarship raffle.

Students and parents or guardians are welcome to attend any event site. Only one session is needed to attend.

Kent School District College Goal Sunday Events are:

– 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Jan. 17 at Kentridge High School.

– 3 p.m to 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 19 at Kentlake High School

– 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Jan. 21 at Green River Community College.

– 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Jan. 22 at Kent-Meridian High School.

– 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 23 at Kentwood High School.
