The event is open to families from Palmetto, Coral Reef, Killian and South Dade high schools.
Tickets will be available on April 15. Contact the college advisor (CAP) at any of the participating high schools for tickets. Admission is free, but tickets are limited to two per family.

There will be time at the end of the program for questions and answers.
