• Two Upcoming College Events


    Check out the two great college events coming up soon!

    We are partnering with Modesto Junior College to present our annual “College Night” on Wednesday, August 28, from 5-7:30 p.m. on the Modesto Junior College East Campus, 435 College Avenue. The event will feature representatives from over 65 four-year colleges and universities, and a variety of workshops, including Financial Aid, Application Essay Writing, and an Admission Overview. 

    Transportation to the event is available for all Modesto City Schools students and families. Buses will pick up from Empire Elementary, Orville Wright Elementary, and Hanshaw Middle schools. The first bus will leave Empire Elementary at 4:15 p.m., then pick up at Orville Wright Elementary at 4:30 p.m. Another bus will leave Hanshaw Middle School at 4:30 p.m. The buses will loop back to each school for additional pickups every 30-45 minutes. The last buses will leave Modesto Junior College at 8 p.m.

    The second event is the University of California’s Information Session on Wednesday, September 4, from 6-7:30 p.m. at Gregori High School, 3701 Pirrone Road. UC admission representatives from UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UCLA, and UC Merced will be on hand to give prospective students and their families information about the University of California system, an overview of academic and student life at each of the four campuses, and provide an overview of the admission process. The event will end with a question and answer session. Register for the event on the University of California’s website
