ST. CROIX - By the end of this week, thousands of high school students from across the Virgin Islands will have participated in the 23rd Annual Caribbean College and University Fair.

The fair features representatives from 21 colleges and universities, in addition to representatives from military branches, on a tour through the United States Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands to give students a chance to get a look at schools that can offer them programs and even scholarships in their chosen fields of study.

Gregory Tyler, a senior counselor at St. Croix Central High School who has organized the fair ever year, said juniors and seniors in public, private and parochial high schools as well as adult learners were invited to take advantage of the fair.
