This is the list of schools and institutions who will be visiting with Valley students, virtually or in-person, during the 2021-2022 school year. This list is updated regularly but may not reflect every school recently added. For the most up-to-date list, please see Naviance Student.
Students interested in meeting with admissions representatives should sign up through Naviance Student. Students needing a space to attend a virtual visit at Valley should see Mrs. Maly in the Counseling Center if they need a space to attend the visit. Visits typically last 30-60 minutes.
College & Career Fair
The Golden Circle College Fair is the largest college fair in Iowa. The fair is an annual favorite as it draws in colleges and universities from across the United States, and offers Iowa families a chance to explore nearly 135 colleges in one day.
A new addition to the fair is the Career Cluster area. Each of the 16 Career Clusters will be represented by Iowa businesses offering insight and advice on different career paths. The fair also features breakout sessions on job outlooks in Iowa, employer expectations, college selection, and the financial aid process. The fair is held annually the last Sunday in September or the first Sunday in October depending on the calendar.
