North County Eighth Grade Career Fair
Each January, MCLA welcomes approximatley 400 eighth graders from Drury High School, Hoosac Valley High School, Mt. Greylock Regional High School, Clarksburg Elementary, Abbott Elementary and Berkshire Arts and Technology School to come to the campus to learn about future career possibilities. Each student chooses two workshops to attend, which are taught by Berkshire County professionals. A total of 18 to 20 engaging, interactive workshops are offered each year.
Comments from students who have attended the fair:

"It helped me decide what I want to do when I get out of high school."
"I liked knowing that there are so many options open to us and finding out about the different paths I can take."
"I enjoyed listening to the speakers' stories about how they achieved where they are today."
