The Hart School District is hosting a College & Career Fair on Wednesday evening, Sept. 7, from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at West Ranch High School, to assist students with the very important step of drafting a career plan to be followed while making post-secondary education decisions.
All students are invited to attend, including students that attend private, charter or are home-schooled. The evening is most appropriate for sophomores, juniors and seniors and their parents.
The Hart School District is a high performing district whose goal it is to prepare all of its students for their post-high school education. The District serves students interested in all education options including universities, community colleges, such as College of the Canyons, and career technical education (CTE) programs, as well as apprenticeship programs.
There will be admissions representatives from two and four-year California colleges and universities, Career Colleges such as ITT Tech and many out-of-state schools. The representatives will be there to distribute literature, provide information and answer questions of college and career-bound students. Career preparation and apprenticeship program representatives will be on hand to answer questions about their educational opportunities.
“The College & Career Fair will represent every level of post-secondary education,” according to Dave LeBarron, Director of Curriculum & Assessment for the Hart School District. “If you are a student pursuing a job after high school, you need to attend this fair.”
Workshops on a variety of topics of interest to students and parents about college admissions, financial aid and community college programs and transfers, are scheduled in addition to the exhibit-style format of the expected 100 colleges represented at the fair. A special workshop will be offered in Spanish as well that will cover a variety of important college admissions info.
More information on the fair can be found on the Hart District website – http://hartdistrict.org/index.php/students/career-center/600 – including a complete event program to help plan the evening’s activities.
The Hart School District was selected to be a stop on the college fair circuit produced by the Intersegmental Coordinating Committee, of the California Education Round Table, serving students across the state with the goal of, “All students will meet high academic standards such that they will be prepared for subsequent success in education or the workplace without the need for remediation in core academic disciplines.”
