The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District is sad to announce, they will NOT be hosting a face-to-face fair this year. There will, however, be a virtual opportunity for students to connect with colleges and/or universities. This years fair will be hosted by the University of Anchorage and StriveScan, we are excited to partner with them for this event, see registration details below:
Anchorage Alaska College & Career Fair
October 13 & 14, 2020
The goal of the virtual college and career exploration program is to provide students with a wealth of college and career training search information, allow them to learn about different institutions, and ask questions of admissions counselors, all in a safe, flexible, online format.
The virtual program will consist of both panel presentations and a more traditional college and career and career fair experi! ence, where students will be able to get exposure and interact with a large number of organizations in a two-day program.
StriveScan hosted their nationwide Strive Virtual College Exploration program this spring and it was an overwhelming success with over 180,000 students and 500 colleges and universities from around the world. They are also hosting virtual fairs in more than 20 ! states this fall. We are partnering with StriveScan to bring a more tailored version of this program designed to serve the students across all of Alaska.
