The Georgia Education Articulation Committee’s (GEAC) Fall 2011 PROBE College Fair will be at the Effingham Career Academy tonight from 6-7:30 p.m.

The fair is free and open to high school students and their families. The eight-week fall tour consists of 61 college fairs held at various schools and venues across the state of Georgia.

GEAC’s mission is to stimulate interest in post-secondary education for citizens of Georgia by bringing together students, parents, counselors, administrators and representatives of post-secondary educational institutions including, but not limited to, colleges and vocational-technical schools.

The tour stops provide local high school students a chance to speak one-on-one with representatives from colleges and universities in one central location.

“For many families, finding the time and resources, especially with the price of gas, to visit colleges and universities is tough,” said Bill Smith, executive director of PROBE. “By bringing the PROBE college fair to the students, they are able to be exposed to schools they might not otherwise have a chance to experience.”

Founded in the early 1980s, GEAC formed a committee consisting of various secondary and post-secondary education professionals from throughout the state.
