Join us for the 9th Annual Student Success Expo and STEM Festival on Saturday, January 6, 2018, 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.

This 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 2018 Student Success Expo Planning Committee is also excited to announce the addition of the Young Entrepreneurs and Young Inventors Showcase! The purpose of this showcase is to spotlight the students in our schools who currently own their own business or who have invented products that make everyday life better.

School District programs highlights include: Performing Arts, Engineering, Welding, Aviation, Cosmetology, (Hair, Nails and Barbering), Culinary, Medical & Allied Health, Construction, Automotive Repair and Collision, Fire Fighters, 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 have an opportunity to apply and speak to college representatives from Harvard, Georgia Southern, University of Georgia, Savannah State University, Armstrong State University, Savannah Technical College, Morehouse, Spelman, St. Leo and other major colleges and university.

The Student Success Expo and STEM Festival is an event that has continued to grow – drawing thousands of participants each year to learn about the seamless transition from elementary, middle, and high school to post-secondary education.

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 interest (SY 18-19). 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.
