Educational options on display at School Expo

Reps from 50 schools to gather at The Avenues this weekend


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Among the most frequently asked questions for those wanting to continue their education are: What school is best for me and is help available to help pay for those classes?

Going from school to school can be time consuming.

The easiest way to find answers to those questions for people looking to continue their education is the First Coast School Expo.

Whether someone wants to pick up where they left off in high school, is a recent graduate looking toward the future, or is looking to learn new skills and be trained for a new career, teachers, administrators and financial aid experts from almost 50 schools will be at The Avenues Mall for the event this weekend.

Some 50 schools will have representatives onsite to answer your questions Saturday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon until 5 p.m.

Last year, thousands of people saw the door open to new opportunity at The First Coast School Expo. Most said they left the event with an optimistic attitude about the future because they learned of opportunities they didn't think were available to them.

Nelson Mandela said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

The First Coast School Expo might just be the place to for someone to start changing their world.
