More than 400 students and family members attended SCUSD’s annual College Fair held last weekend at Hiram Johnson High School. The event was hosted, in part, by the Hiram Johnson Law Academy (pictured above).

Attendees met with representatives of more than 60 colleges, including most of the CSUs and UCs and colleges as far away as Illinois and Arkansas.

Students and family members seized the opportunity to engage in lively discussions about college cost vs. benefits, the application process and entrance essays (called “personal statements” by the UCs).

SCUSD sponsors this fair yearly for the benefit of all students and many families attended despite their students being younger than high school.  Watch for this event next September as you assist your child in selecting their future educational options.
