This January 11, the DOE will celebrate the City’s second annual College Awareness Day, a citywide public schools event meant to encourage families and school staff members to talk with children about college and other postsecondary activities and programs. Throughout the day, schools across City will be raising awareness about what college is and why it matters for City students and their families through activities, workshops, and class presentations from City schools alumni.
