For Colleges: Why the YES Prep College Fair
Most school districts offer college fairs outside of the school day in the evening. These events have had declining participation even before the pandemic and engage younger grade levels and the most highly motivated students. Having the fair in the evening also creates barriers for students who work or have transportation barriers.
For this reason, we offer our college fair every year, during the school day in lieu of classes for one morning, to remove barriers to access. This allows 100% of our junior and senior classes to participate. This is one way we celebrate our district's college-going culture and promote our mission.
