Career Day | Sept. 26, 2017 | 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
A successful future starts with planning; and it’s never too early to start.
Career Day (formerly College and Career Day*) is an excellent opportunity for students in grades 8-11 to explore careers in Arts, Humanities and Communication; Business and Information Technology; Natural Resources and Agriculture; Health and Human Services; Industrial Technology and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
Students will do interactive activities with professionals in each career field. SFCC staff will guide groups of 20-22 students to ensure they are in the right place at the right time. We ask that for every 20 students attending that the schools provide one chaperone to accompany them all day. This will ensure that all students are properly supervised.
Students attending Career Day will receive FREE T-shirts! Registration is limited to 1,500 students, so register early to ensure your students can attend and receive their FREE T-shirts!
*The College Fair that coincided with Career Day in the past will not be held.
