College representatives schedule private visits to Fairfax High School from mid-September through November. These visits provide a personal touch that may not be available in a school's literature. Representatives inform students about the school's admissions process and deadlines, campus life, housing, majors available and scholarships. Students have the ability to ask questions and this is often a chance for students to meet the person who will read their applications in the future.
College visits are updated daily in Family Connection (through students' Blackboard accounts), under visit schedule. Students should sign-up for the visits on-line, print the confirmation page, and remember to ask their teacher to be excused 24 hours in advance of the visit. The confirmation page will serve as the student's pass and it must have a teacher's signature in order to attend the visit. Most visits are held in the Career Center. The following is a list of the College Visits scheduled for the 2012-13 School Year (to date):
