Event description
College readiness experience for 8th-12th grade students and supportive adults designed to give you a leg up in college admissions

About this event

DUE TO COVID-19, THE 14TH ANNUAL COLLEGE PREP CONFERENCE & COLLEGE FAIR WILL BE FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED TO THE FIRST 475 REGISTRANTS. THE EVENT HAS BEEN SHORTENED TO 5 HOURS, BREAKFAST IS NOT BEING PROVIDED AND GROUP RATES ARE NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.

Imagine 475 students and parents gathered in one place gaining a comprehensive understanding of the entire college readiness process – how to work hard in school, how to apply for admission, from learning how to seek scholarships, and apply for financial aid, to gaining tips on how to excel and graduate from college. This is exactly what the CLD Annual College Prep Conference & College Fair plans to provide.

In collaboration with college and university administrators, CLD will expose students and parents throughout the state of Indiana to the idea of college as an available option and to the many opportunities that a college education affords. Breakout sessions such as Your Character Closet: Choosing the Right Character, College Essay Workshop and Know Your Financial Worth, are just a few of the informative and interactive sessions that will be presented during this conference.

This conference will provide resources for youth and parents to help change behavior and values while guiding them to a self-directed path that will help them achieve in high school, enroll in and graduate from college, and gain employment in their career choice.

As Marion County continues to progress toward reopening, Center for Leadership Development (CLD) looks forward to welcoming 350 students, supportive adults, presenters and volunteers to the 14th Annual College Prep Conference and College Fair taking place on September 11, 2021 at the Indiana Convention Center.

The health and safety of our participants and staff remain our highest priority, and in the spirit of community, we commit to minimize any potential exposure by taking the following precautionary measures derived from Back on Track Indiana’s Guidelines and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Guidance for Child Care Programs:

  1. Participation will be capped at the first 475 to register
  2. Limited tickets available for each grade
  3. Participants will remain in sessions while presenters rotate
  4. Session sizes will be limited
  5. Masks will be required for all participants, staff and presenters
  6. Boxed lunches will be provided
  7. Temperature checks will be required

In addition, the Indiana Convention Center is hard at work to ensure the cleanliness of their facilities and developing new policies and procedures including:

  1. Built-in six-foot social distancing measures added to floor plans, seating areas and crowd management
  2. Limited and designated entries and exits
  3. One-way travel markers in hallways
  4. Additional hand sanitizing stations
  5. Hospital-grade air filters and 24/7 air circulation

We look forward to welcoming our students and families at this one-of-a-kind event; we have missed each and every one of our young future leaders!
