Brooklyn and Staten Island Independent School College Fair

For Junior Students Only: Juniors will be chaperoned to attend this much-anticipated annual college fair. Close to two hundred colleges and universities will be on hand to introduce their institutions to our students—the representatives are usually the very people who read our students’ applications. This is an invaluable opportunity for juniors to get their feet wet in the college search process and to introduce themselves to the various admissions officials at schools they may be interested in. Students will return in time for their after school engagements.
