Join the NAACP of Garland at their Fall Education Forum for a discussion over postsecondary education. Parents and students will be able to participate in panels with guest speakers as they dive deep into college topics.

Students who attend the forum will also have the opportunity to register for one of two testing practice opportunities that will be held on Oct. 19. Students can register for a free SAT/ACT practice test or a "Diving Deeper" practice session. The practice tests will be scored with emailed results, and the practice session will cover sections of the test with discussion and feedback.
