September/October YA Events

As we get ready to return to school,  mark the dates for our upcoming events in YA. Our database refresher class will prepare you for a great school year. High school students can take a free practice SAT/ACT exam to prepare for the real thing, and parents and students are invited to our “Countdown to College” seminar to learn about the application and admissions process.

As always, we have fun crafts and food programs to get you in the mood for Halloween and the fun fall season.
