Held annually, the Quaker College Fair exists to help Quaker and non-Quaker students think through the search process, access information, and consider what a values-based college search can bring to the discernment process. It is centered in conversations about “where will I thrive?” and “what do I really care about?”
We welcome Quaker families to bring their friends and also encourage groups of students to attend virtually together. Friends who teach in public schools are welcome to include interested students they may know. The virtual event is appropriate for all high school aged students, and is particularly relevant to Juniors, Seniors and their families.
