    Virtual College Exploration

    CACRAO is proud to present our Virtual College Exploration program, for all North and South Carolina students, September 14-October 9. The four-week program consists of hundreds of opportunities for students to learn about the college search process and about many different colleges through panel presentations and information sessions. As an organization, we wholeheartedly acknowledge the integral role that school counselors and college advisors play in the educational advancement of high school students.  While each academic year presents unique challenges, we know this year will present you with challenges like never before.  As we partner for another year to guide high school seniors in the post secondary search and selection process, we want to take a moment to acknowledge that we would not be able to do our work without your help and support.  We hope that this year's virtual events will be an easy and accessible way for students to learn more about the unique college opportunities from CACRAO partners close to home, and around the world. 

    Students will gain a wealth of college knowledge, get exposure to a variety of colleges, and have the opportunity to ask questions of admission counselors, all in a safe, flexible, online environment. All high school students, parents, and counselors throughout North and South Carolina are all welcome to attend. Participation is free.

    Students should participate live so they can ask questions and interact with the college admission counselors. If students are unable to attend live, we still encourage them to register for the sessions they are interested in and recordings will be available on the CACRAO website later.
