VSAC Hosts College Planning Day for Students & Parents

WINOOSKI — Registration is under way for the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation’s 9th 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 13 at Saint Michael’s College in Colchester

• March 27 at VTSU Castleton 

• April 10 at VTSU Lyndon

The program enables each student and parent to choose up to five workshop topics from more than a dozen available, and includes a free bag lunch. Topics include how to find the right college, 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
