College Fair

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

Usually held in early October, 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

During the 2018 College Fair, the featured presentation was facilitated by Gary Rigley, Assistant Director of Financial Aid from the University of Notre Dame. He discussed 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.
