Thurgood Marshall Academy Hosts Largest College Fair to Date

Last week, Thurgood Marshall Academy hosted its 9th annual College Fair, with 95 college representatives in attendance.

Students from area high schools also attended – Cesar Chavez PCS Parkside High, Cesar Chavez PCS – Capitol Hill Campus, Washington Latin Public Charter School, National Collegiate Prep, Maya Angelou Public Charter School, Washington Math Science Technology PCHS, and E.L. Haynes.

Thurgood Marshall Academy is one of the few schools in Southeast, DC that offers a full-service College Counseling Department, dedicated to preparing students for college. Our College and Alumni team gives students the tools they need to find and enroll into colleges that fits their passion and personality.

At the college fair, students met with admissions staff to learn more about the schools they plan to attend, collected pamphlets and other materials that gave them an inside look to the respective school’s college culture.

Ms. Larson, LVC Volunteer in the College Department, said, “The college fair is really important for our students because they not only get the chance to learn about a wide variety of schools, but they also see that there are so many colleges interested in meeting with them.  Events like these are crucial in helping to steer the conversation about access to post-secondary education in the U.S. and help give students the confidence to pursue higher education.”

Thurgood Marshall Academy continues to provide college preparatory resources to students from Wards 7 and 8, by building long-lasting relationships with colleges and universities across the U.S.
