Metro: Philly High School fair to be held at Pennsylvania Convention Center

More than 100 schools will be on hand to help students figure our their options. 

For about nine years, Philadelphia’s 8,500 8th graders have done all (well, most?) of their homework. Now comes the biggest project yet. Finding a high school.

More than 100 public, private, charter and Catholic high schools will be on hand next weekend at a fair to help students finishing middle school in Philadelphia figure out their next step.

The 2015 Philly High School Fair will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on Friday, October 16 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and the next day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
