Wordless Wednesday: Young Students Get a Taste of College

On Wednesday, April 4, the Westfield Capital Management Team at the Neighborhood House Charter School (NHCS) hosted a day-long College Fair for the whole school. Students from grades one through eight stopped by to participate in activities, speak to visiting college representatives, learn about the 40 colleges represented at our fair and have their photos taken as college graduates, diplomas in hand. The fair was a huge success for students of all ages; the 3rd graders, instead of playing their usual games of tag and “celebrity” at recess, devised a new game called “college.” See slideshow here.

  1. Awesome event NHCS! It’s never too early or too late to get the idea of college into our students’ heads. And you guys did it in such a creative way! I’ve heard a lot of positive feedback, so great job! I just hope University of Michigan was represented… never too early to be a Wolverine! :D
