Catch the Spirit: College Day Is Almost Here!

Watch Katherine Smith Elementary students celebrate College Day.

The 4th annual College Day will be held on October 10, 2014. The goal is to create a college-going culture among students in Santa Clara County, and to inspire and support first-generation students in their pursuit of a college education. Students take part in interactive activities to inspire and support their aspirations for a college education. Join this special day by talking with young people about going to college and creating a college-going culture for Santa Clara County students.

“We hope to inspire students to believe that they can afford college, and to start saving today, whether they are fifth graders or seniors in high school.”
