COVID-19 has shut down many opportunities for students to visit, learn about, and connect with colleges. NACAC aims to bridge that gap through these special one-day events that enable students to easily attend college presentations, ask questions, and demonstrate interest… all without leaving home.

“High school students have had so many disruptions in their lives. It's important to let them know that making plans for the future is still important and college is still important,” said Angel B. Pérez, NACAC chief executive officer. “These virtual college fairs are a reminder to keep pursuing their college dreams."
