Students take glimpse into the future

The themes of continuous learning and investment in students’ futures were prevalent at the high school’s College and Career Night .

The event featured representatives from colleges and universities throughout the country visiting the high school to discuss courses, incentives, applications and much more. High school students and their parents were encouraged to attend and ask questions about what the various colleges offered. More than 100 colleges from 19 different states were represented at the fair, including several Ivy League institutions.

Workshops were conducted to provide additional information related to undergraduate learning, including financial aid, colleges for students with learning disabilities, preparing for the college process, historically black colleges and NCAA and athletic scholarships.

“It is never too early to start thinking about and planning for college,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kishore Kuncham said said. “We promote continued learning and investing in our children’s future in Freeport. No matter how young or old, everyone should attend the College Fair.”
