College Fair and College Night
Sunday, October 14 and Monday, October 15, 2018
The FCPS College Fair and College Night events offer a venue for high school students and parents to meet with colleges and universities to share information and answer questions about their institutions. Approximately 400 colleges attend these events. College Fair is an open-air setting and traditionally draws approximately 5,000 students and parents. College Night, held the following evening, attracts between 2,000 and 3,000 attendees. In addition to the open-air setting, College Night features workshops related to the college admissions process.
Students looking for an experience beyond the classroom should consider a gap year. FCPS hosts a gap year program fair each February and has produced a video featuring an FCPS student who recently completed a gap program.
