College Fair

Each year, all Fort Wayne-area students, families, and adult learners are invited to attend the Canterbury High School College Fair!

On Wednesday, October 16, attendees can speak with college admission counselors and representatives about the admission process, academic opportunities, student life, athletics, scholarship programs and more.

  • 6 – 7:30 p.m.: College Fair
  • 7:30 – 8 p.m.: Featured Presentation: Gary Rigley, Assistant Director of Financial Aid from the University of Notre Dame will discuss financial aid options, as well as completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

In previous years, we’ve welcomed an array of colleges and universities to the College Fair, including small liberal arts and large state schools, urban and rural institutions, in-state and out-of-state colleges, and others. We’ve found that this variety of schools helps students better understand what type of college or university best meets their interests and needs.

College Reps

The Canterbury School College Fair has two special opportunities for College Reps:

Afternoon College Day: College Admission Counselors are welcome to participate in the first of two opportunities: the Afternoon College Day for Canterbury High School students.

This is an excellent opportunity to share your expertise regarding your school, the admission process, the application process, financial aid or any other college-related topic you choose with Canterbury High School students. And, you'll benefit by getting to know potential applicants on a more personal level.

  • 11 a.m. - Noon: Check-in and tech set-up
  • 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.: Lunch for College Admissions Counselors
  • 1 - 1:40 p.m.: Session 1 Special Interest Topic
  • 1:50 - 2:30 p.m.: Session 2 Special Interest Topic
  • 2:40 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.: Session 3 School-specific Information Session

Space is limited to 25 College Admission Counselors, so please register early!

Evening College Fair: College Admissions Counselors are also welcome to participate in the Evening College Fair, which is open to all students and their families in northeast Indiana, northwest Ohio, and southern Michigan. 

Each year, we invited more than 3,000 students from 100 schools, including adult students who are interested in pursuing or finishing a degree program. Young Scholars Academy students are also invited; these students are first-generation, high-achieving and/or underrepresented students throughout northeast Indiana in Grades 8-12.

  • 4 - 5 p.m.: Check-In and table set-up
  • 5 - 6 p.m.: Dinner for College Admissions Counselors
  • 6 - 7:30 p.m.: Evening College Fair
