WINOOSKI — Registration is under way for the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation’s 11th annual College Pathways program, a free day of college planning workshops for high school sophomores and juniors and their parents.
In order to accommodate as many families as possible, VSAC hosts College Pathways in three locations on the following Saturdays:
· March 17 at Saint Michael’s College in Colchester

The program enables each student and parent to choose several workshop topics from nine available, and includes a free bag lunch. Among topics offered are writing a college application essay that stands out, strategies for taking SATs and ACTs, creating a college list that fits you, and demystifying financial aid.
The event begins with registration at 9 a.m. and concludes in the afternoon. Families are encouraged to register early, because workshops fill quickly. For more information or to register, visit www.vsac.org/CollegePathways.
