Pre-college fair Saturday


All MPS students in grades 6 through 12 are encouraged to attend the 2014 Department of Public Instruction Pre-college Summer Opportunities Fair Saturday at Marquette University.

Representatives from Wisconsin colleges and universities will be on hand to discuss educational pre-college opportunities available to students over the summer, including campus visits and specialized camps for STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), music, leadership and more.

This fair is sponsored by MPS’ TEAM GEAR UP, a college- and career-readiness program that prepares students for success beyond high school.

The event is March 15, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Marquette’s Alumni Memorial Union Café.

Students must be accompanied by a parent and bring proof they qualify for free or reduced lunch and a most recent report card. Learn more about the event.
