IROC! (I’m Ready for the Opportunity of College) Summer Camp is a two week summer camp that helps 8thgrade middle school students investigate their potential for college attendance and career exploration. Students are exposed to various collegiate campuses, business environments, and community service projects while using the national Kids2College curriculum.
The Fort Worth ISD, in collaboration with college partners, sponsors the Middle School College and Career Expo.
This event is designed to provide information to both eighth grade students and their parents for exploring colleges and the types of careers that are available.
The Middle School College & Career Expo creates an avenue for important dialog to occur and be the catalyst for both students and parents to start thinking more seriously about college and careers.
The Fort Worth Independent School District, in conjunction with collegiate and community partners, sponsor financial aid sessions at most District high schools.
Assistance is available in both English and Spanish to help parents and students with completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)/ Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) application.
Parents and students are encouraged to bring the following items to complete FAFSA/TASFA forms:
Federal Student Aid PIN*
Social Security number*
Driver’s license number
Tax records* — or use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool
Records of untaxed income*
Records of all assets (savings and checking account balances)
List of the school(s) the student are interested in attending
*= Mandatory documents needed to complete the FAFSA/TASFA forms
Whether in-person, or in cyberspace, Fort Worth ISD teachers, staff and students are encouraged to dress in college colors as a way to promote the attainable goal of a college education.
The District is asking schools and families to get creative. While some may dress in gear from his or her favorite institution, others may decorate learning at home spaces or classrooms doors. Still, others may incorporate the vision or mission statement of a particular school in a lesson plan. Your limitation is your imagination!
Hundreds of universities and institutions from around Texas and across the nation construct booths to house YouTube videos, presentations, and opportunities to chat. College Night will provide a wealth of educational opportunities at the click of a button.
This event always promises to offer “one-stop shopping” for all things higher education.
The Fort Worth ISD Administration Building, at 100 North University Drive, is currently closed to the public and is accessible by appointment only.
