Keep an eye on our growing COLLEGE EXHIBITOR LIST
To introduce a diverse array of colleges to a community of self-directed young people who are challenging the paradigm of what is possible in education.
For nearly a decade, the Pacific Northwest Homeschool College Fair has made every effort to expose students to high quality post-secondary options and connect college admissions counselors with a demographic of students who are challenging the paradigm of what is possible in education.
We have experienced outstanding success in our mission, as we have brought in a diverse array of college from across the U.S. and Canada and many of our student attendees have gone on to attend a variety of these top universities.
This event is the only one of its kind in the region and is an incredible opportunity, for students, to closely connect with a wide variety of colleges from around the United States and Canada.
Immediately following the fair, college-bound homeschoolers and their families are invited to attend their choice of four exceptional informational seminars. Seminars include:
- The Homeschool Edge, presented by Jordan A. Crenshaw, Admissions Representative, Birmingham Southern College
- Writing the College Admissions Essay, presented by Kirsten Sundburg Lunstrum, Published Author and Attic Learning Community High School Teacher
- Choosing Your Next Step, presented by Michelle Jones, President and Founder, Wayfinding Academy
- College Money Matters: Understanding the Financial Side of a Higher Education, presented by John Anthony Bassett, Director of Secondary Programs, the Attic Learning Community
When & Where
The Attic Learning Community
At the Attic, everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo of what is possible in education. We believe in thinking differently. The way we challenge the status quo is by stoking the flame of the child's intrinsic motivation, focusing on learning- versus teaching, removing grades and testing-which only narrow a child's focus, providing a safe place for taking risks, asking questions, working as teams.
The Attic children are curious, creative, innovators who see themselves as life long learners. Our graduates leave with a strong sense of self, armed with the confidence to lead, work on teams, problem solve and think critically. Our graduates have been accepted into the colleges of their choice and have received over $1.5M in merit scholarships combined.
We offer a unique educational experience for children ages 3 -18, one which supports a sense of self, a passion for learning, community, and childhood through our K-12 program and the Field & Forest Outdoor Preschool program.
