Virtual College Visits/College Fair

We will not be having an in person college fair this year, BUT what MACAC has put together for you is really great! Check out the virtual college exploration options in the link below. Sessions are free and open to all students.


Many of these sessions are outside of school hours, but if there is one during school time arrangements can be made by your counselor for you to have a pass out of class (exempt absence) to participate in these seminars. Individual, small groups, or an entire class participating can be arranged.


Also, your counselor can arrange virtual visits with college representatives during school hours for individuals and small groups if there is a particular college you would like to learn more about.

MAKE A HABIT OF CHECKING YOUR SCHOOL EMAIL!

Many important announcements will come via email to your school gmail account. Make a habit of checking it daily or at least weekly! Scholarships will come out from announcements like this weekly or bi-weekly and will include time sensitive information and deadlines! You don't want to miss out on something because you didn't know.

Scholarship Notification List

New scholarships are added weekly to the Online Scholarship Opportunities Page. Seniors will receive an email through their school gmail when the site is updated.

if you would like to receive them to a personal email address or if your parent would like to know when new scholarships are added to the website, sign up to be on the Scholarship Notification List.
