College Fair Set to Help Port Chester 8th-Graders, Families Plan for Future

3rd annual college fair set for Friday at Port Chester Middle School.

Port Chester 8th-graders and their families can get an early-start on planning for higher education through a College Fair set for Friday at Port Chester Middle School 

“We hold this event in order to bring early awareness about college to our students,” said Port Chester Middle School Principal Patrick Swift.  “It is never too early and is extremely important to start thinking, planning and preparing for the future. The College Fair exposes our eighth grade students and their parents to what a college education offers and affords them a better understanding of what colleges look for in applicants.”

The College Fair will be in the school gymnasium from 9 -11 a.m. and parents are welcome to attend. College fairs are common at high schools, but it is unusual for a middle school to organize this type of event for its students, Swift said.

Colleges that will be present at the Port Chester Middle School College Fair include:

Berkeley College

City University of New York – Central Office

The College of New Rochelle

The College of Westchester

Columbia College

Concordia College

Dominican College

Iona College
