College Fair Extraordinaire Members Explore Options at Pierce College
On Saturday September 9th, 2017, students from our Canoga Park High School, Cleveland and Chatsworth Charter High Schools attended the Annual College Fair at Pierce College.
Some of our soon-to-be graduates attended financial aid workshops, and were excited to discover ways to make college more affordable and accessible while others were curious about degree programs. Citlali, a bright and energetic senior, asked college representatives about music production, a dream of hers for as long as she could remember. What course of study could she follow, and how would that help her achieve her goals?
She and the other students left the fair with some of their questions about college answered, new vistas opened up, and lots to share with their parents.
