Entering the College Zone coming up in April

Event flyer with informationALBANY, N.Y. (March 27, 2018) -- The City School District of Albany once again is partnering with the Albany affiliate of the Black Child Development Institute to provide an opportunity for students to attend Entering the College Zone at Hudson Valley Community College.

 

The event will be held Saturday, April 28 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. The theme of this year’s Entering the College Zone event is “Transformation through Collaboration.” The district will provide free bus transportation to and from the event, with pickup and dropoff locations at several schools throughout the district.

 

Entering the College Zone is a pre-college program designed for students in grades 7-12 (and their parents and guardians) who might not otherwise know or believe that college can be in their future. The program communicates that early and sustained preparation is the key to attending and succeeding in college. 

 

During the event, students and their parents and guardians will take part in programs such as “Financing Your Way through the College Zone,” “Accessing College Information by Computer” and “Creating a High School Plan with an Eye Toward College.” 

 

Additionally, students will participate in a session entitled “Basic Tips from High School and College Students.” There will be a Role Model Luncheon and Keynote Speaker.  During the luncheon attendees will have the opportunity to hear from a variety of professionals who have succeeded in college and their careers.

 

If you would like to participate, please download and complete the registration/permission form and email it to Albany@affiliates.nbcdi.org no later than Friday, April 13.

 

You also can mail the completed form to BCDI-Albany, PO Box 232, Glenmont, NY 12077, or return it to your child’s guidance counselor or home school coordinator at school.

 

If you have additional questions, please contact Barry Walston at (518) 441-9877. You can check out the Black Child Development Institute’s Albany affiliate on Facebook @BCDI.Albany.

      

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to work in partnership with our diverse community to engage every learner in a robust educational program designed to provide the knowledge and skills necessary for success. The district serves about 9,600 students in 18 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
