    Though the district will not host a traditional College Fair this year, high school students still have the opportunity to receive the information and support they need.

    "Due to the pandemic, WCS has cancelled our annual in-person college fair this year," said WCS High School Secondary Counseling Specialist Becky Mitchell. "However, we will provide families with virtual opportunities to explore and interact with colleges and universities around the country throughout the year."

    The first opportunity is a series of virtual College 101 sessions. The sessions, hosted by the Nashville Admissions Regional Network (NARN), are scheduled for the upcoming weeks. Each meeting begins with an informational session followed by 10-minute college presentations and time for questions. A different group of colleges will present each week.

    The schedule of presentations is listed below. Those interested in attending should register for their desired sessions. Once registered, they will receive a link for the virtual session.
