FCPS to Host Annual College Fair, College Night in October
Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) will host its annual College Fair and College Night on October 21 and 22. The 2012 College Fair will be held from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 21, at Fair Oaks Mall, and the 2012 College Night will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Monday, October 22, at Hayfield Secondary School.
Students are strongly encouraged to register for the College Fair and College Night events. Registered students will receive an admittance pass that will allow college admissions representatives to electronically scan their information, eliminating the need for students to fill out separate information cards for each college they visit. Approximately 400 colleges and universities will be on hand for College Fair and College Night.
College Night is an evening of workshops on college information and preparation, which are led by FCPS staff members and outside experts. Among the topics to be covered are SAT and ACT tests, career planning, financial aid, writing the college application essay, opportunities for student athletes, opportunities abroad, FCPS Family Connection, and considerations for students with disabilities. More information is available online.
Note: Fair Oaks Mall is located at 11750 Fair Oaks in Fairfax. Hayfield Secondary School is located at 7630 Telegraph Road in the Alexandria region of Fairfax County.
