A One-of-a-Kind Experience for Middle Schoolers

The Education Alliance, in partnership with the WV Department of Education, WV Higher Education Policy Commission and WV Community Technical College System, is excited to offer free, 1-hour Virtual College Tours for middle school students throughout the month of April. Every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday in April, we will hop on the virtual school bus and visit 2 year and 4 year colleges across the state. Schools are encouraged to sign up because all visits are:

  • Free – Join as many visits as you want. Click, register, done!
  • Fast – Your students will learn a lot about college in a 1 hour virtual visit without the long bus ride!
  • Fun – Colleges will offer fun, student-friendly campus tours and each visit will end with a drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card!
  • Explore and Register

    Below are all of the participating colleges in The Education Alliance’s 2021 Virtual College Visit. Hover over them to see when they are touring and click “Register Now” to register via Zoom. Note: You can register for more than just one!

    Registration – This program is designed for 7th graders, but is open to any middle school grade at the school’s discretion. All Virtual College Visits registrations must be coordinated by a school staff member (e.g. teacher, counselor etc.) at the middle school. Individual students cannot register.

    Technology – The Virtual College Visit will be conducted via Zoom. A link will be provided by The Education Alliance upon registration. Any classroom that has screen/camera/mic/speaker capabilities can be used to participate.
