Welcome to the Litchfield High School School Counseling Department. The Litchfield Public Schools’ comprehensive counseling program is student-centered and sequential, addressing three primary domains: academic, career and personal/social development.
The developmental approach is founded on the belief that individuals experience general stages of academic, career and personal/social growth and that delivery of services must be structured to anticipate and fulfill those needs. Students are assigned to their counselor according to alphabetical distribution in order to provide continuity of services within families.

DO YOU NEED MONEY FOR COLLEGE OR CAREER SCHOOL?
Apply for Federal Student Aid
What is federal student aid?
It’s money from the federal government that helps you pay for college, career school, or graduate school expenses. Aid is available through grants, work-study funds, and loans. Every student who meets certain eligibility requirements can get some type of federal student aid, regardless of age or family income. Before you apply, get an estimate of how much aid you could get at StudentAid.gov/fafsa/estimate.
How do I apply for aid?
You need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form at fafsa.gov.
Students and parents will need an FSA ID to sign the form online. You’ll also use your FSA ID to access information about your financial aid on U.S. Department of Education websites. You can create a FSA ID in advance or while you fill out the FAFSA form. To find out more about the FSA ID, visit StudentAid.gov/fsaid. The FAFSA portal opened October 1st for the 2021-2022 college school year.
