Craft Academy is hitting the road, and we will be traveling this fall to present about our program, the application process, and answer questions from students who are beginning the application process.  We also have several events listed below that we would love for you to pass along to your Sophomore students who may be interested in learning more about our program.

Including, one of our newest ways to present – our Virtual Visit! 

VIRTUAL VISITS

Join us every Monday at 1 p.m. for a Craft Academy Virtual Visit through Google Hangouts!

This is an online presentation that usually lasts about 30 minutes, and will include Craft staff and typically includes current students.

Virtual Visits are also great for class time!  If you have a specific time and day that you would like to schedule a Virtual Visit please email craftacademy@moreheadstate.edu and we will be glad to schedule that for you.

Registration for Craft Academy Virtual Visits can be found here:  https://www.moreheadstate.edu/Academics/Craft-Academy/Prospective-Students/Schedule-a-Virtual-Visit

Along with Virtual Visits, we are excited to announce several other events coming up this fall.

Information on these events can be found below.  If you have a school site or newsletter that you can include these dates on, we would really appreciate your help to keep your students informed about upcoming events as well as ACT test registration and our application deadlines.
