COLLEGE AND CAREER FAIR

On Monday, March 5, 2018, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Homestead High School will be hosting its Annual College and Career Fair. We anticipate over 80 four-year universities, two-year colleges, and vocational schools located throughout the United States to be in attendance. We have invited representatives from various careers to participate, as well as the Armed Services and financial institutions. The program is open to the public. One junior or senior student, in attendance, will win a $200.00 scholarship.
There is no admission charge.

For students and parents wishing to explore the following colleges: Duke, Georgetown, Harvard, Penn, and Stanford. A meeting will be held in South Bend, Indiana on October 2, 2017 at 7pm. More information on this meeting is available here

Every attempt is made to monitor each student's credit progress and graduation status. However, it is ultimately the parents' and student's responsibility to ensure that graduation requirements are met. It is recommended that you consult at least annually with the school counselor on your course selections and graduation status.
