Senior Parents, 
The American Institutes for Research (AIR) is partnering with the Kentucky Department of Education and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System to learn whether text message reminders help students complete the tasks they need to go to college. The project is funded by a grant from the Institute of Education Sciences at the U.S. Department of Education. To learn more about the Text4College project, please visit www.text4college.com. All graduating seniors will be invited to participate, and participation is voluntary. If you would like to opt out of participation on behalf of your student, please complete the form linked on the attachment.

6th District League of  Sportsmen Scholarship due May 5, 2021.
Bluegrass Indo-American Civic Society Scholarship due date is April 30, 2021.



The 2021 ACHS Graduation Ceremony will be held at Alltech Arena on Friday, May 28, at 6:00 p.m. Alltech Arena currently has a 35% seating capacity, which will require each graduate to receive six (6) tickets for their family members to attend. Students will receive their allotted tickets in the coming weeks and will sign/date stating they’ve received them. ACHS will send out communications to families when that process begins. Due to capacity restrictions, tickets will not be reissued once a student has signed for their allotted tickets. Those who do not have tickets to attend will not be permitted entry into the arena. Viewing capabilities will be provided via streaming on YouTube (more details to come).

All spectators will enter via the main entrance on the west end of the building. Once you enter through one of the doors, you will submit your tickets to a staff member and proceed to a designated available area and be seated. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, seating will be sectioned in groups of six (6) throughout the arena. Seating will be on a first come first served basis. We ask that you do not sit in sections that are not permitted or move barriers to maintain social distancing guidelines. Masks must also be worn any time you’re in the building. Masks will not be provided for those who do not have one.

Spring 2021 Season
NACAC Virtual College Fairs
Dear Educator,

We hope you'll encourage your students to register for free at virtualcollegefairs.org.

More than 100,000 students and families signed up for NACAC virtual fairs this past fall. Students give them an enthusiastic "thumbs up" because it's so easy to drop in on live Zoom sessions offered by hundreds of colleges on a single day.

NACAC has begun promoting the fairs on Snapchat, TikTok, and Instagram. But your recommendation has the greatest impact! A Counselor's Resource page is available with downloadable flyers, social media graphics, and more.

We can't thank you enough for letting your students know about this opportunity to explore their college dreams. If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].

Best wishes,
NACAC Virtual College Fairs team
 
Spring 2021 Schedule
Students may attend as many fairs as they wish! Click to see a list of colleges that will share information about their programs, majors, financial aid, and more on each fair date. Additional colleges will be added throughout the spring.
 
Four of these events are smaller Focus Fairs and are especially for students with special interests or residing in specific regions: STEM (Mar. 7), Performing & Visual Arts (Mar. 16), Western US (Apr. 10), Southeastern US (Apr. 20).

Connect Virtually
COVID-19 has shut down many opportunities students previously had for visiting, learning about, and connecting with colleges. NACAC aims to bridge that gap through these special one-day events.

At each virtual fair, students attend college presentations, learn about their options, ask questions, and demonstrate interest... all without leaving home.

Please share this short how-to video with students and encourage them to sign up at virtualcollegefairs.orgwell before each fair date.

 



NACAC Virtual College Fairs contribute to overall support for NACAC, the association serving the counseling and admission field since 1937.
