School system plans annual College Fair - TOMORROW

Charles County Public Schools will host more than 135 colleges at its 13th annual Charles County College Fair on Wednesday, Sept. 22, at North Point High School. Hours are 9 a.m.-1 p.m. and 6-8 p.m.

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. Students wishing to attend the fair during the school day must submit a signed permission slip to their school's college and career advisor.

The public is invited to attend the evening session of the fair and parents are encouraged to bring their children. Two financial aid workshops will be held, one at 6:15 p.m. and one at 7:15 p.m., for parents and students to learn about the financial aid application process.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call your child's school or 301-934-7314.

A list of local scholarships, as well as a link to Maryland colleges and universities is also available on the school system Web site at http://www2.ccboe.com/students/scholarships.cfm.
