Representatives from over 100 colleges nationwide have the opportunity to meet with high school students and their parents at Chester County Virtual College Fair, which is hosted by the Chester County Intermediate Unit. Additionally, due to the success of last year's Transitioning Beyond High School program, we are excited to invite students to join us for the program again this year. Colleges with programs for those with all abilities will be attending to speak about topics such as: living and transportation accommodations, receiving a certificate versus receiving a four year degree and the various programs that are available.
The 2020-21 fair will be powered by VisitDays, a user-friendly platform that provides intuitive, informative, interactive and fun virtual experiences. For ease of use, we created an Instructional Guide for how to set up your VisitDays account and begin selecting the school(s) you'd like to meet with in a live and/or one-on-one session.
Attending the fair provides career readiness opportunities for students by ensuring that they have access to career exploration and preparation activities that are standards-aligned and evidence-based. This includes the development of career plans and portfolios that help students identify pathways and opportunities for postsecondary success.
