On Wednesday, October 5th, over 120 colleges packed the high school gymnasium for the annual Bellport High School College Fair. Students were allotted time to visit college tables, learn about majors, admissions criteria, and the application process. The high school guidance counselors were on staff to assist students and answer college-related questions. In addition to the colleges in attendance; military branches, trade, technical, and aviation schools were available as well.

Students at Bellport High School have multiple opportunities throughout the year to learn about college and career opportunities. The high school guidance counselors host two college fairs; one in fall and another in the spring, and a career fair in the spring. Students are also encouraged to attend large career fairs hosted by Suffolk County Community College and Hofstra University. High school counselors will be meeting with senior students throughout the fall to assist with college admissions and career planning. Current juniors and their parents/guardians will meet with counselors in the spring to develop a testing timeline and gain an introduction to the college admission process.
