Fayetteville, NC – Today, families from across the county stopped by Cumberland County Schools’ Choice Fair to ‘check out’ the numerous educational options the school district has to offer students. According to event organizers, more than 1,000 people attended the informational fair.
 
Educators and student ambassadors manned school, career academy and departmental information booths that lined the walls of E.E. Smith High School’s atrium, cafeteria and gymnasium as families of students filed into the school. Many stopped to ask questions of the representatives in a quest to find that ‘perfect fit’ for their child.

 
The Choice Program options range from engineering and fire science to the arts and foreign languages. As the Choice Application season begins on Nov. 12, many parents seemed to have liked the idea of being able to do ‘one-stop shopping’ for their child’s education during the three-hour-long event.
 
“This has been great,” said Kaia Frye, who attended the Choice Fair with her family in order to learn about the high school Choice options for her daughter, an eighth-grader at John Griffin Middle School. “This has helped us get information firsthand and talk to students, who are currently in the programs, about their experiences. This feedback has helped my daughter make a decision today about what school she wants to attend next year. She plans to apply to Cumberland International Early College High School and we’re excited!”
