Beyond the lunchroom: Benefits of qualifying for free and reduced-price lunch

Families were recently mailed copies of the free & reduced price lunch program application, which is also available online at https://www.fondafultonvilleschools.org/services/food-services/#free.

The FFCS Counseling Office would like to remind all students and parents about some of the benefits associated with being eligible for this important program:

  • Students who take College in the High School courses at Fonda-Fultonville through FMCC receive a tuition discount of 50 percent.
  • The SAT & ACT college entrance examination fees can be waived by obtaining a voucher from the school counseling office.
  • Students who apply to college using the common application or SUNY application may have all application fees waived by their counselor.
  • Students who are eligible for free and reduced-price lunch are also eligible for the Excelsior Scholarship, which provides free SUNY tuition at any SUNY community college or university.

If you have any questions, please contact the school counseling office at 518-853-4415 x 4235.
