Upcoming Events

Due to continuing concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) we have made the difficult decision to cancel the upcoming Career Expo on March 25th and the Avon-Simsbury College Fair scheduled for March 30th.

The decision was made in light of discussions with school officials and partner agencies and in consideration of the health and safety of all participants given the uncertainty that surrounds the spread of this virus.

All College Rep Visits through April have also been cancelled.

For information on more future events, please see our events calendar:
