College Fair at Freeport High School


Students and their families attending the Bound for College Fair and Workshops filled the gymnasium at Freeport High School on Oct. 19. The primary objective of the college fair was to provide students the chance to speak with college officials face-to-face and learn important details about the college application process, available financial aid, and NCAA athletic scholarship criteria. More than 80 colleges, universities, technical schools, and military organizations sent representatives.

“It was wonderful to see so many students and their families attending this year’s college fair,” said Director of Guidance Emma Perdomo. “This is a great opportunity for our students to focus on their career goals and to learn more about the college application process and how to successfully apply to colleges that will provide the education they need to achieve their goals.” 

Members of the schools National Honor Society were on hand to answer questions and aid fellow classmates as they made their way around the fair. Students and their families also attended a number of seminars as part of the college fair that covered topics including financial aid, how to save for college, NCAA and Athletic Scholarship Workshop, and preparing for the college process.
