SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - For students just beginning their freshman year of high school, college may seem like a long way away, but at least one area school thinks that’s the perfect time for students to begin to consider their next step.
At SABIS International Charter School in Springfield , students in all four years of high school attend their annual college fair, which was held Monday morning. School Director Erin Reuter told 22News that they find it important to have students involved at an early stage in the process.
“It is our hope that by having all of our students participate, meet with representatives, that we might be successful in having all of our students achieve their college dream,” she said.
Students met with representatives from the colleges, getting answers to questions about admissions, academics, and campus life.
“We feel it’s important for our freshmen to come and meet with representatives,” Reuter said, “It will allow them to begin early on their college pathway.”
More than 50 colleges and universities from around New England and beyond participated in the fair at SABIS.
