Hundreds of students across Aldine ISD will get a leg up on their future by meeting with representatives from institutions of higher learning during College Night set for October 11.
The event will take place at the M.O. Campbell Educational Center (located at 1865 Aldine Bender Road, Houston 77032) from 6 -8 p.m.
The annual after-school event is a one-stop shop to gather advice, tips and information on post-high school education and training.
“College Night is great for college–bound students that know which institutions interest them,” said Denise Keaton, coordinator of student financial aid. “However, it is also ideal for students who are not–so–sure–yet or those beginning to think about their future plans.
“They will have a chance to have any and all questions answered about continuing their educational options after high school.”
Students and their families will learn about the college application process and requirements for admission. They will be able to explore college options and offerings, financial commitment and much more.
Recruiters from more than 140 colleges, military academies/service branches, trade schools and universities will be present at College Night 2017.
The District’s Guidance and Counseling Department will offer a financial application workshop. To be able to complete the financial aid application, families must bring their 2016 tax information.
The evening will be valuable to help families with a student who would be the first to attend college. English- and Spanish-speaking counselors will be hand to answer questions. The goal is to alleviate some of the stress for parents and students unfamiliar with the process they face.
The department will also share college preparation tools and programs available to Aldine ISD students.
“Each year, we strive to partner with more colleges,” said Dr. Charlotte J. Davis, director of guidance and counseling. “We always look forward to providing this experience to our Aldine ISD community.
“We hope the night will make families aware of the breadth of opportunities available to students. If we can open up doors the parents never thought they could walk through, that‘s a success.”
