Last week, over 40 juniors and seniors at BFA attended the New England Association for College Admission Counseling (NEACAC) annual fair. The event was held in Patrick Gymnasium at the University of Vermont.
“There was a lot going on, but it was nice having all that info in one spot” – Paige Beyor, BFA Student
The college fair was made up of over 250 colleges and universities from across the US and Canada, and offered access to local resources such as Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC).
Students braved the heat and joined other high school students to gather information and speak with college representatives.
“It was a good experience for me, getting out there and seeing all of the different schools. I talked to more (colleges) than I had before” – Kayla Nester, BFA Student
This was a great opportunity for our students to begin planning for their future by exploring a wide array of college options!
