Fulton County parents wondering how to prepare their children for life after high school are encouraged to attend a special free event – the 2013 Future Focus Fair – on Saturday, October 19, at Georgia Tech’s Student Center. The four-hour event begins at 9 a.m.
Hosted by Fulton County Schools’ Counseling Department, the Future Focus Fair aims to educate parents of middle and high schoolers about the many opportunities awaiting their children after graduation and how they can help prepare them today. The event is more than a college fair – it’s a preparation fair to share information about a multitude of post-secondary options facing students.
Representatives from several of metro Atlanta’s top colleges and universities will explain the college admissions process and other entry requirements through a panel discussion. Following the discussion, parents can attend small group, breakout sessions with other organizations to learn about classes and other courses their children should take in preparation for college or the workforce.
Panelists are confirmed for:
Confirmed Breakout Sessions:
University of Georgia
Georgia Institute of Technology
Georgia Perimeter College

Atlanta Metropolitan College
Gwinnett Technical College

Fulton County Schools Counselors/Graduation Coaches
