CHEA is pleased to announce a College Prep/College Fair event on Thursday, June 28 from 5:30-9:00 p.m. at the Pasadena Convention Center as part of CHEA's 35th Annual Homeschool Convention. Our desire is to show parents that not only is it possible to homeschool through high school, but you can be successful and your kids can get into college. This evening is included in Convention registration. There is no separate charge, but you MUST be registered for the Convention to participate. Teens are encouraged to come to learn more about the college admissions process and attend the college fair. Teens are part of the family registration and require no other payment. Our speakers will provide you with all the latest information on the transition from high school to college including:
- The difference between a community college, Bible College, Christian College, private college, UC, and Cal State and how the admissions process differs for each.
- What you really need to get into college.
- How do you earn dual-credit?
- And the biggest question: How do you pay for college?
After our great speaker sessions we will have a college fair. Find the perfect match for your student, ask questions of the schools to find out what they are looking for, and enjoy the beginning of an amazing journey as your child starts to move into adulthood.
This evening will be a wonderful stepping off point for your family as you look forward to the future. See you there! This year we have a lot of great workshops for the high school years. Make sure to check out all the Convention has to offer you. Schedule coming soon.
