Betty Fairfax has been active in Degree Phoenix, an initiative with Phoenix College and the City of Phoenix to increase college-going high school students.  The school participated in a College Application Campaign this year, getting seniors to apply for financial aid and apply to at least one college, and had the highest success rate among participating schools.  Fairfax students have the highest completion rate for FAFSA (Free Application for Financial Student Aid) among Phoenix schools.  They have increased each of the last two years and are on pace to surpass last year, as staff and community volunteers assist students in the application process.
