The Augusta Area High School High Tech Program hosted a College Fair and Resource Day on November 2 to give the High School High Tech students an opportunity to talk individually with post-secondary institutions, community partners, and local employers. There were over 280 High School High Tech students that attended and participated in this event from Richmond, Columbia, McDuffie, Burke and Curtis Baptist school systems. There was a presentation from Georgia Futures on financial aid available to assist students who want to attend post-secondary education. This event gives the students an opportunity to start making decisions and plans for their futures after graduation from high school.
The Georgia High School High Tech Program is a comprehensive community-based program providing youth with disabilities a link to academic and career-development experiences that enable them to successfully meet the workforce demands of the 21st century.
