2023 Fall College Fair
The Student Success Center at APRCHS was proud to host our Annual Fall College Fair on Thursday October 19th, 2023.
During the Fall College Fair EVERY STUDENT at APRCHS attends the College Fair either during their English class or by invitation.
The College Fair is held in the Gymnasium and hosted representatives from over 60 Colleges and post-secondary choices.
The Fall College Fair is part of APRCHS’ commitment to the Four-Year College Process where students begin researching their post-secondary options in Freshman Year.
The Fall College Fair is followed up by the Spring College Fair that is exclusive to students in their 3rd year at APRCHS and allows them to take a deeper look at their choices.

Thank you to Sound Business Inc (https://www.soundbusiness.org/) for being our partner in the college process for the last 33 years. This year Dr. Downing led the Student Achievement Center’s efforts to push into 9th and 10th grade classrooms to help prepare them for the College Fair.
