This popular, high-energy event stresses to eighth grade students the need to take control and make the best use of their high school experience. Our goal is that each student will develop the mindset they will attend college. Students participate in individual tracks that take them through a series of group sessions. These sessions are designed to show why high school is important and how to get involved with the many opportunities available in higher education. Host sites are limited due to institutions' capacity to host.
If you are a Washington middle school teacher or counselor who is interested in bringing your students to an 8th Grade Exploration Day, please contact the Site Coordinator of the location you wish to attend. Note some sites have limited capacity due to space.
