  • As we head into the spring, high school seniors are thinking about their next steps after graduation. It is important that students feel supported and encouraged as they consider postsecondary options. To help foster a college-going culture in our schools, First Gentleman Andy Moffit is hosting the 2nd Annual Rhode Island College Signing Day event that will celebrate students making the commitment to continue their education past high school. College Signing Day is now a growing tradition taking place in cities and schools across the nation. The purpose of the event is to build excitement and awareness for the importance of pursuing a postsecondary degree, whether it be enrolling in a 2- or 4-year public or private institution or registering for a certification or job training program. Not only does College Signing Day publicly celebrate the postsecondary plans of graduating seniors, but it also inspires younger students to make future educational aspirations. CHS signing day will be May 5th.
