The annual Getting Ready for College Conference for West County students is held in the Fall. The goal of the conference is to provide students and parents with knowledge necessary for the college application process. This free conference is open to all high school students and their parents throughout the West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD). Students and parents learn about college life from former WCCUSD students and how to make college a reality by participating in workshops on college planning, college admissions and financial aid.
The event is hosted jointly by the Ed Fund, West Contra Costa Unified School District, and the West County College Access Network, a consortium of 25+ organizations dedicated to increasing the number of college-bound students in the district.
Parents and students are encouraged to attend together, but students may attend without their parents. Advance registration is preferred but not required.
Thank you to the City of San Pablo for supporting the 2017 Getting Ready for College Conference.
