      3rd Annual College Readiness and Scholarship Fair

      The 3rd Annual College Readiness and Scholarship Fair will occur August 24, 2013 from 8:00 to 1:00 am at Naperville Central High School in Naperville, Illinois.  This is a FREE event and will highlight community organizations, scholarship agencies, mentoring opportunities, and various other resources that exist to prepare students for college, while keeping them involved in positive activities.  There will be academic and motivational adult and student lead sessions for attendees, including: ACT preparation, how to start a parent group, the importance of advocating on behalf of your child, college readiness for grades 6 through 12, navigating your life not to become a negative statistic, and many many more.  The Colgate Dental Van will provide FREE dental exams for children 1 to 12 years old. Students will receive backpacks and schools supplies (while quantities last).

      This year we have added the "Parent University", a great resource for parents/adults that are considering going back to school or beginning the college journey. Counselors/Recruiters will provide information regarding GED courses, adult certificate and degree programs.

      Food concessions will be available, and we encourage you to participate in our fundraising raffle.  Win a tablet, camera, television, or a number of great gifts while in attendance.

      Students, parents and adults from across the Chicagoland area, Northwest Indiana, Rockford, Milwaukee, and anyone ready to receive great information regarding how to prepare for a college education or trade are invited to attend.  

      Note: You can register at the event, but all online pre-registered students and parents/adults will be entered into a special raffle.  You must be present to win.
