The College Fair is a great opportunity for students and parents to speak to university, college and technical school representatives. There are over 150 colleges represented at this fair, along with workshops on financial aid and learning about different college options.


Come hungry. There will be several San Diego food trucks to satisfy any appetite. The food truck vendors will be donating a percentage of their profits to the Mt.Carmel High School Grad Nite.



PUSD high school students and their parents are invited to attend our college fair. There will be college readiness events for middle school students and their parents in the spring of 2014.


Colleges interested in participating in the 2014 PUSD College Fair should contact Ila Fischer coordinator@pusdcollegefair.org.

The PUSD, Palomar Council PTA, and the PUSD Foundation sincerely appreciate our College Fair supporters. Without their generous donations, this amazing event would not be possible!
