School system plans eleventh annual College Fair


More than 130 colleges will participate in the eleventh annual Charles County College Fair on Sept. 15, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and 6-8 p.m., at the Greater Waldorf Jaycees Community Center on Crain Highway in Waldorf.

The fair is hosted by Charles County Public Schools. High school juniors and seniors attend the event during the school day as part of the system's career readiness goal in the five-year plan. Students are transported from school by bus and are able to speak with representatives and gather information from participating colleges.

The public is invited to attend the evening session of the fair from 6-8 p.m. Parents are encouraged to bring their children to the fair. Additionally, two financial aid workshops will be held, one at 6 p.m. and one at 7 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public.
