The St. Johns County School District (SJCSD) will hold its annual College and Career Night on Wednesday, September 9 from 6-7:30 p.m. in the gymnasium at Pedro Menendez High School located at 600 State Road 206 West, St. Augustine.
College and Career Night provides an excellent opportunity for SJCSD high school students from both public and private schools to receive firsthand information on post-secondary educational opportunities. Representatives from over 80 colleges, universities, armed services, career institutes and trade schools will be participating in this event.
While this event traditionally focuses on juniors and seniors, underclassmen are also encouraged to attend. Many colleges have very selective admissions criteria and students should start planning early. The latest information about the college admissions process, program offerings as well as scholarship and financial aid will also be available.
“This event is one in which we are able to bring post-secondary representatives from our state and from across the nation,” said Denise Faulk, director of Guidance and Programs of Choice and the event’s coordinator. “It’s a great time for our students and families to explore opportunities and gather information in a one-stop shop environment.”
