SJC College & Career Night

The St. Johns County School District (SJCSD) will hold its annual College and Career Night Wednesday, September 6 from 5 – 7:30 p.m. in the gymnasium at St. Augustine High School located at 3205 Varella Avenue, St. Augustine.

College and Career Night provides an excellent opportunity for St. Johns County high school students from both public and private schools to receive firsthand information on post-secondary educational opportunities. Representatives from over 75 colleges, universities, armed services, career institutes and trade schools will be available from 6 – 7:30 p.m. Families will find an increased presence of representatives with a focus on meeting their student’s diverse needs and expectations.

The latest information on topics such as the college admissions process, college transition, scholarship and financial aid will also be available during information sessions from 5 – 7 p.m.

While this event traditionally focuses on juniors and seniors, underclassmen are also encouraged to attend. Many colleges have very selective admissions criteria and students should start planning early.

“We are delighted to provide an opportunity for families to meet with post-secondary representatives from across the state and the nation without having to travel outside of our county,” said Denise Sumerix, director for Guidance and Programs of Choice. “I love seeing the excitement that this event creates for our students as they explore their many options and renew their focus on goals.”

The event is presented by the SJCSD Department of Guidance and Programs of Choice. For more information, please contact your school’s guidance department, visit the website at or call Dana Chapman, Dept. of Guidance and Programs of Choice, at (904) 547-7754.
