YES Prep Public Schools

YES Prep College Fair

Across Houston and around the country, most school districts sponsor college fair nights where students can come and learn about colleges. Students and their families must arrange transportation, take time off work, and connect with colleges alongside students from across their districts.

Connecting with a college in person helps inform students' thoughts about college and allows students to demonstrate interest in a college. Demonstrating interest is a factor that some colleges take into consideration when making admissions decisions.

That is why we are committed to 100% of our Juniors and Seniors attending a College Fair twice during their high school experience at YES Prep. Each year, YES Prep empowers our students by connecting 100% of Juniors and Seniors with Colleges Admissions Officers at our Annual College Fair during the school day. By hosting the fair during the school day, YES Prep demonstrates that connecting with colleges is a core part of our students' experience.

For the first time since 2019, YES Prep's College Fair will be in person. YES Prep transports 100% of Juniors and Seniors to the fair, and each school will get to spend over an hour in the fair with three other Schools, allowing students to make meaningful connections with various colleges.  

Last year, YES Prep students connected with over 160+ Colleges and Universities, including:

  • 16 Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs)
  • 32 Texas Public Colleges and Universities
  • All 24 of YES Prep IMPACT College Partners
  • Representatives from US Military Academies and Officer Scholarship Programs (ROTC)
  • Some of the Most Competitive Colleges in the United States in the QuestBridge National College Match Program
  • Colleges and Universities with comprehensive programs to support students with learning differences.

Information about colleges attending this fair will be available a month before the fair. In September, students and families will receive communication about your school's College Fair schedule and information regarding permission slips for the program.
