The class worked on their "Acceleration Due to Gravity" lab outside by the football field. They collected data on different objects as they fell to the ground. It was a great, hands-on way to learn about acceleration and gravity!

FAFSA Day Connecticut

Formerly known as College Goal Sunday (CGS) is a nationwide volunteer-driven effort to assist high school students and their families in accessing higher education. Professional financial aid personnel along with other volunteers are available to assist high school seniors and their families in completing and submitting their FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid online in a comfortable and local setting. However, this year, all of our events will be hosted virtually.


The FAFSA is required for consideration of most sources of financial aid assistance. There is a wide variety of financial aid programs available to help families from all income levels, including many grants and scholarships.
