Life After High School College Fair Returns to Huron High November 21, 2013
The Ann Arbor Public Schools and Ann Arbor Academy invite you to participate in our 4th annual “Life After High School” - Learning Differently College Access event on Thursday, November 21, 2013 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at Huron High School in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
This evening differs from other college and career nights because it brings students from throughout southeastern Michigan together with colleges and organizations that provide special resources for students with learning challenges. Colleges, universities and transition programs will be on hand to share information about their programs with special focus on resources available for students with ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, non-verbal learning disabilities and processing challenges. Students and family members will have ample time to talk about these programs and opportunities.
This is a free event, made possible with help from the Parent, Teacher and Student organizations of the AAPS and Ann Arbor Academy. No registration is required and parking is free for families.
For exhibitors, free pre-registration is available by contacting Robyn Watson atWatson@aaps.k12.mi.us.
