Following in the steps of River Hill High School’s music information event, the Fine Arts Advisory Council of the Howard County Public School System offers a special event for students in the fine arts disciplines of visual arts, dance, music, and theater. This event is our Fine Arts College Information Night, and it is held every October at a high school here in Howard County.
At the Fine Arts College Information Night, students in middle and high school will be invited to attend panel discussions in each area of the fine arts (dance, theater, music, and the visual arts). Each panel consists of a university or college professor in that field, a practicing professional in that field, a Howard County Public School System teacher in that field, and a Howard County Public School System alumni majoring in that field currently at a college or university. In addition, the panel moderator is often a parent of a current or former HCPSS student in that field. Students can expect to learn about such topics as: the proper preparation for applying to universities, college admissions practices, the realistic expectations of a fine arts major, how HCPSS prepared students for a career in the fine arts, and what is means to be a professional in the fine arts.
The next College Information Night will be held on Monday, October 10, 2016, 7-9:00 pm, at Mount Hebron High School in Ellicott City. Registration begins at 6:30 pm.
