CACRAO is proud to present our Virtual College Exploration program, for all North and South Carolina students, September 14-October 9. The four-week program consists of hundreds of opportunities for students to learn about the college search process and about many different colleges through panel presentations and information sessions.

    Students will gain a wealth of college knowledge, get exposure to a variety of colleges, and have the opportunity to ask questions of admission counselors, all in a safe, flexible, online environment. All high school students, parents, and counselors throughout North and South Carolina are all welcome to attend. Participation is free.

    Students should participate live so they can ask questions and interact with the college admission counselors. If students are unable to attend live, we still encourage them to register for the sessions they are interested in and recordings will be available on the CACRAO website later.
