High schoolers need to begin making plans for the years beyond graduation and the National Christian College Fairs want to help in that process.  Their mission:

NACCAP exists to provide professional development, support and encouragement for Christian College, Graduate School and Seminary admissions personnel and High School guidance counselors across North America.

With that in mind they organize fairs across the country to bring college reps to you. October is the prime time for this and these are links to more detailed info on ones coming to the Chicago area:

College planning workshop

June 4th, 2011

I received this from a host of a radio show geared toward those headed to college, and their parents:

Over the past year I have had dozens of Home Educators throughout the Midwest contact me requesting information on “How Home Educators Can Send Their Kid’s to College Without Draining Their Life Savings, Raiding Their Retirement or Just Plain Going Broke.”

Until now, I simply have not had the available time to conduct such a specialized workshop.

On Tuesday June 14th, I will be conducting an Online College Planning Workshop for Parents of Home Schooled Junior HS & HS Students.
