High school sophomores, juniors, and parents who want to get a jump on college planning should attend Vermont Student Assistance Corporation’s (VSAC) 12th annual College Pathways program, a free day of workshops on preparing for higher education.
In order to accommodate as many families as possible, VSAC hosts College Pathways in three locations on the following Saturdays:
March 16 at Saint Michael’s College in Colchester, 9:15 am to 2:45 pm (lunch provided)
March 23 at Castleton State College in Castleton, 9:30 am to 2:15 pm (lunch provided)
April 6 at Lyndon State College in Lyndonville, 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
New this year, VSAC is offering a remote option for families who are unable to attend a College Pathways event in person. On March 23, from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm, three of the sessions being held at Castleton will be viewable via Vermont Interactive Technologies (VIT) at three sites: North Country Union High School in Newport, Lyndon State College, and Brattleboro Union High School.
Depending on the location, College Pathways offers up to eight workshops on a variety of topics, including writing a college application essay that stands out, strategies for taking SATs and ACTs, creating a college list that fits you, and demystifying financial aid.
Families are encouraged to pre-register for both the campus-based and VIT College Pathways events because workshops fill quickly. For more information or to register, visit www.vsac.org/CollegePathways.
