New opportunities await Dallas ISD upperclassmen at upcoming college fair


It’s never too early for high school juniors and seniors to start thinking about their future. To help prepare for college and career success, Dallas ISD invites its 11th- and 12th-grade students to the annual Districtwide College Fair, which is designed to empower and equip students with valuable information for their postsecondary journeys. 

This annual free event is an opportunity for Dallas ISD students and their families to gather essential information, make connections with higher education institutions, and celebrate the accomplishments of Dallas ISD’s brightest stars. 

This year, a VIP Recognition Celebration during the fair will honor the district’s students in the top 10% of their class. The celebration will serve as a special opportunity to recognize students’ outstanding academic accomplishments and inspire them to continue their pursuit of excellence.

“Students oftentimes don’t know the opportunities afforded to them as a top-10 percent student,” said JoAnn Jackson Powell, director of Counseling Services. “We want to encourage them to attend a four-year institution and make them aware of their opportunities post high school.” 

The College Fair will be from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 20 at Ellis Davis Field House, with the VIP celebration taking place from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Those attending will receive information on admission and financial aid from over 170 universities and colleges scheduled to participate, as well as information from other organizations on various postsecondary opportunities.
