This fall, I’m excited to share that there will be TWO upcoming events sponsored by SFUSD via the African-American Achievement and Leadership Initiative and in partnership with the San Francisco Alliance of Black School Educators, 100% College Prep, Mo’Magic and other amazing organizations focused on helping Black students access college and career opportunities.
Please spread the word to let everyone know about them. They are both great opportunities for ALL AGES. Tell your friends! Let’s make sure #BlackFamiliesRock this fall in SFUSD!
3rd Annual HBCU Fair – Monday, September 12, 2016 at Mission High School
Former Superintendent Carranza has this to say about the event:
The San Francisco Unified School District in collaboration with the San Francisco Alliance of Black School Educators will host the 3rd Annual Historically Black College and University (HBCU) Fair on Monday, September 12, 2016 at Mission High School from 4:00-8:00pm.

Students who wish to apply and qualify for “on-the-spot” admissions and scholarships should bring an official transcript, if available, and a copy of their ACT/SAT test scores, if taken, for each college application they plan to complete. In addition, uAspire – an organization dedicated to helping families afford college – will share information on developing affordable financial aid packages. All high school students and their parents will benefit from this annual college planning event and opportunity.
Participating Colleges include: Alcorn State University, Bennett College, Benedict College, Bethune-Cookman University, Clark Atlanta University, Dillard University, Fisk University, Florida A&M State University, Grambling State University, Hampton University, Howard University, Langston University, Lincoln University, MO, Livingstone College, Miles College, Morgan State University, Savannah State University, Shaw University, Spelman College, Stillman College, Talladega College, Tougaloo College, Texas Southern University, Tuskegee University, Virginia State University, Wilberforce University, Wiley College and Xavier University of Louisiana
