Jean Marie, Keynote Speaker~San Francisco Education Fair October 5th, 2019 at 1pm

The 2019 San Francisco Education Fair will provide an opportunity for students and parents to educate themselves about their private education options in San Francisco. Students and families will also have access to leading authorities and practitioners in areas related to the college admission and enrollment process.

Engage with top-rated private and independent K-12 schools and meet face-to-face with school admission officials.

The Educational Fair is open to families with children from all grade levels, from preschool to high school. The Education Fair is designed to reach out to these prospective students and their families and show them their options for elementary schools, secondary schools, and private colleges. To ensure accessibility to families with young children, we will provide a play place with a jumper slide (bounce house) for children 12 and under to play in.

The event will feature keynote seminars from leading educational experts and college admissions officers from top universities. These seminars will help families understand more about the differences between private schools and their other options. Attendees will learn more about the realities of the college admissions process today, and how to best prepare their children for college in each stage of their lives.

There will be workshops for parents on issues that include bullying prevention, adolescent development, and healthy technology use for children. Workshops will be available to middle and high school students as well, and will include the following topics: applying for financial aid and scholarships, and building a strong portfolio for college admission.
