Student Success Expo – A Pathway to Graduation and Beyond!

Published on: 12/18/2018

Join us for the 10th Annual Student Success Expo and STEM Festival on Saturday, January 5, 2019, at the Savannah Mall from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.  In addition to college and career information, attendees will enjoy interactive displays and learn about all public school options across the district while gaining valuable information related to program pathways. 

For the second year, the Expo will feature a “Teddy Bear Clinic” which will focus on the Healthcare Science fields and showcase a collaboration between the school district and local healthcare professions and post-secondary institutions.  The 2019 Student Success Expo Planning Committee is also excited to announce the continuation of the Young Entrepreneurs and Young Inventors Showcase! The purpose of this showcase is to spotlight students in our schools who have an entrepreneurial spirit or who have invented products that make everyday life better. Any student with a business - perhaps their own lemonade stand, jewelry line, cupcake business, event planning business, or is a budding cosmetologist who braids hair or designs nails -  we want to showcase them and promote their business!  We want the community to meet our young inventors!

Other District program highlights include: Performing Arts, Engineering, Welding, Aviation, Cosmetology, (Hair, Nails and Barbering), Culinary, Medical & Allied Health, Construction, Automotive Repair and Collision, Public Safety, and Logistics - just to name a few.  Students and parents will find a wide range of educational pathways that are sure to inspire the thirst for knowledge and higher learning.  Students will also have an opportunity to apply and speak to college representatives from Harvard, Georgia Southern, University of Georgia, Savannah State University, Savannah Technical College, Morehouse, Spelman, St. Leo and other major colleges and universities!

The Student Success Expo and STEM Festival is a signature event for the District and continues to draw thousands of participants each year to learn about the seamless transition from elementary, middle, and high school to post-secondary education.  The event helps make the connection between our programs of study and college and career options through information available at school, collegiate, and business displays.   The Savannah-Chatham County Public School System’s Choice Program Application process will also kick-off at the Expo.  Parents will be able to apply on-site for the Choice school or program that meets their child’s interest (SY 19-20). 

The event will include student competitions, interactive booth displays, a robotics competition, and prize giveaways.  Admission and parking is free and open to the public.
