VSAC Hosts College Planning Day for Students & Parents

WINOOSKI — Registration is under way for the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation’s 10th 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 19 at Saint Michael’s College in Colchester

·       April 2 at Castleton State College in Castleton

·       April 9 at Lyndon State College in Lyndonville

The program enables each student and parent to choose up to four workshop topics from a dozen available, and includes a free bag lunch. Among topics offered are applying to college, college application essay writing, paying for college, scholarship search, two-year college options, resources for students with learning disabilities, playing intercollegiate sports, and admission to highly selective schools.

The event begins with registration at 8:30 a.m. and concludes at 3 p.m. Families are encouraged to register early, because workshops fill fast. For more information or to register, visit www.vsac.org/CollegePathways.
