Our Educational Fair is open to families with children from all grade levels, from preschool to high school. The Education Fair is designed to reach out to these prospective students and their families and show them their options for elementary schools, secondary schools, and private colleges. To ensure accessibility to families with young children, we will provide a play place with a jumper slide (bounce house) for children 12 and under to play in.
