COLLEGE FAIR AT WOOD!

This Thursday, April 27th we have a College Fair along with our Career Day. Twenty-seven colleges and universities will be in the gym and all students will have an opportunity to attend. Many of our local Catholic Colleges as well as Penn State, Temple, West Chester and more will be here. Each student will receive the ‘Guide to Navigating a College Fair’ and we ask that you encourage your child to ask questions and gather information. It is never too early to begin thinking about the future.
