General Info

College & Career Day 2017



Your day begins with registration beginning sharply at 8:00 a.m. at duPont Manual High School Auditorium (entrance 29, directly by the red Manual sign). Please do not use the main entrance to Manual. 

PLAN TO ARRIVE EARLY taking into consideration rush-hour traffic, construction and parking. 


Wear business casual clothing (e.g., dress slacks, shirt, and shoes for men; dresses, skirts, or pants for women), but dress comfortably!

We suggest wearing comfortable shoes because you may need to walk between buildings  on the Manual and YPAS campus.  

If you are a Dance or Musical Theatre student, we encourage to dress up for the college fair and change into your dance attire for the dance audition.  Musical Theatre students should change back into dress clothes for the monologue/song portion of the audition.  


Please be aware that after lunch your role is primarily that of waiting for your student to complete their experience. But fret not!
There are many great restaurants and coffee shops in nearby Cardinal Towne (see “Places To Eat”). We highly encourage you to get out and enjoy the beautiful surrounding neighborhood of Old Louisville (a National Preservation District and America’s largest Victorian neighborhood).  

Additionally, special workshops for parents & families will take place in the afternoon.  You won’t want to miss these opportunities to learn about the specifics of filling out financial aid forms, the college planning process, and opportunities post-college.  The designated parent waiting area is the Manual Auditorium (where orientation and workshops will take place).
Parents are not allowed in the audition/review areas.


DVD Yearbooks ordered at Final Day or in the online store along with additional online store items will be available for pick up.

The GSA online store will be open only until September 30th! Place your order now!

Additional items such as stoles, posters magnets and t-shirts may also be available for purchase at CCD if supplies last. 


Please note: The GSA staff will be at Manual/YPAS working the event and will not be able to answer the GSA Helpline on the day of CCD.
