Begin with the end in mind. Hart School District students are encouraged to think this way as families begin to make decisions about education options following high school.
The Hart School District is hosting its 2nd Annual College & Career Fair on Thursday evening, Sept. 13, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Golden Valley 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 juniors and seniors and their parents. Last year’s event had over 3,000 attendees.
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 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, community college programs and transfers and career readiness, are scheduled in addition to the exhibit-style format of the expected 100 colleges represented at the fair.
More information on the fair can be found on the Hart District Career Center website, www.hartdistrictcareercenter.com 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.”
The Magazine of Santa Clarita, KHTS, SCVTV and AV Party Rental are event sponsors. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available by visiting the website noted above.
