College Countdown MS Signing Days

Although the future may look uncertain as high schools adjust their plans due to COVID-19, what is certain is that postsecondary education remains a key component to future success for Mississippi students. That is why high schools around the state are moving forward with plans to observe College Signing Day.

Participating schools will host Virtual College Signing Days to celebrate their students committing to the college of their choice. The media, college representatives, volunteers, and the community at large are encouraged to provide support for the events to honor the students.

National Signing Day is part of The Reach Higher Initiative, Michelle Obama’s effort to inspire every student in America to take charge of their future by completing their education past high school, whether at a professional training program, a community college, or a four-year college or university.  2021 College Signing Day Toolkit Available Spring 2021
