CASIE will host the 5th International College and University Fair in Atlanta, Georgia, on September 17, 2011, at Atlanta International School.
Students (and their parents) studying in International Baccalaureate programmes in schools throughout the southeastern United States will have an opportunity to meet with colleges and universities in the USA and other English-speaking countries who are particularly interested in recruiting IB candidates. This is a chance to find out what it takes to apply to schools outside of the U.S. and learn why the IB Diploma makes a difference.
