Bayport-Blue Point High School juniors and seniors took steps toward planning their academic futures through attendance at the district’s college fair, held in the gymnasium on Oct. 5. Bayport-Blue Point Chairperson of Guidance Ronald Bard said more than 75 representatives set up tables with information about national and regional colleges and universities for students exploring options after graduation. The annual event parallels the guidance department’s focus on aiding students in the college application process.

“The college fair is the perfect opportunity for students to engage in the college application process,” Mr. Bard said. “We are in the process of scheduling junior conferences to start the conversation about the college application process, and by directly speaking with representatives, students gain valuable information about colleges of interest and perspective programs of study.”

Junior Kate, a field hockey athlete, described the college fair as a great opportunity to look at the academic programs available at perspective colleges, in addition to playing her sport. Meanwhile Ryan, also a junior and athlete, was searching for a school that balances a strong academic program and sports.
