It may seem like the school year has only begun, but the first round of college applications is due in just three weeks. On Tuesday, Virginia Beach Public Schools will host a college information night to help students prepare for their next step.
“Whether a student is in middle school and just beginning to explore higher education options, or a high school senior planning to submit college applications this year, this event allows families to gather information from a variety of places,” Superintendent Aaron Spence said in a release.
The event will run from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. More than 170 colleges, universities and vocational schools and the military will be there to recruit prospective students. Representatives will answer questions and describe what their school or organization has to offer.
There will be two financial aid seminars, at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m., on ways to pay for post-secondary education. The Night is sponsored by the school division’s Office of Guidance Services and Student Records.
