Daily Announcements

Dear Parents/Guardians of McKee Seniors,

Financial aid season is upon us and it is time for you and your child to complete their application. Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the only way that your child will be able to get federal and state grants and aid, low-interest student loans, and some scholarships. Even if you think you are not eligible, you must fill out the FAFSA because all colleges require this information!

We will be having a FAFSA Completion Event here at McKee High School to help you through all the steps of the application process. With the help of financial aid representatives from St. John's University and Berkeley College, you will be able to leave the event knowing you completed your application and your child will be on their way to getting money towards their education.


The event will take place February 11, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. with a brief information session by financial aid representatives. Representantes hablan Inglés y Español.

Please see below for important information on documentation required to complete the FAFSA.

Beverages and snacks will be provided and all parents who attend automatically enter their student into a prize raffle. Remember - financial aid is first come, first served and we want to help you get as much money as possible! Please RSVP to Mrs. Eileen Jensen at 718-420-2692. Contact Ms. Jennifer Pecora at 718-420-2619 or jpecora5@schools.nyc.gov with any questions. 

Before the event, get your FSA ID.

●       An FSA ID gives you access to Federal Student Aid’s online systems and can serve as your legal signature.

●       Only create an FSA ID using your own personal information and for your own exclusive use. You are not authorized to create an FSA ID on behalf of someone else, including a family member.

●       To save time, create your FSA ID before the event and bring it with you. Visit fsaid.ed.gov.
