Malcolm Bernard HBCU College Fair

The 25th Annual Malcolm Bernard HBCU College Fair, hosted at the School of the Future, proved to be an overwhelming success, drawing over a thousand enthusiastic students from high schools across the city. The event was marked by a warm welcome extended by 46 dedicated HBCU  admissions professionals. The students benefited from exclusive perks such as scholarships, application fee waivers, and the invaluable chance for instant admissions.

Our Seniors were a source of pride, as many of them secured up to nine instant acceptances and received substantial scholarship offers. The fair’s success is a testament to the dedication of all involved and reaffirms our commitment to fostering educational excellence and opportunities for our students.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

Attention families: The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a Federal law, requires that a school with certain exceptions obtain your written consent prior to the disclosure of personally identifiable information from your child’s education records. However, a school may disclose appropriately designated “directory information” without written consent, unless you have advised the school to the contrary in accordance with school district procedures. The primary purpose of directory information is to allow schools to include information from your child’s education records in certain school publications.

Parents who wish to opt their students out of directory information releases must complete an Opt-Out Form for each of their students and must return each form to the school at which each student is enrolled by November 6, 2023.
