Schools have vastly improved online access to counselors and live events. Parents are not required to invest time and finances researching schools only through a campus visit. NACAC has several virtual and in-person fairs this winter and spring. Other college consortiums have events such as the 8 of the best colleges event.

CPC students will prepare for events and complete the following
