FOCUS is proud to be a sponsor of the Irvine Korean Parent Association (IKPA)
Educational Fair being held on Saturday, April 13, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., to raise funds to support the education of children in the Irvine Unified School District.

IKPA will hold its second Education Fair at Irvine Civic Center for education-related information for students and their families in kindergarten through high school. This public event is open to everyone, including those living outside of Irvine.

Come join in the celebration of education, and experience the performances, demonstrations, face painting, and balloon art (free of charge). More than thirty educational information booths consisting of local educational service providers will be in the plaza in front of Irvine City Hall. Also, educational experts will provide keynote seminars in the Chamber Room of Irvine City Hall. Carefully selected food vendors will sell delicious food in the parking lot.
The IKPA Education Fair will provide a venue to share this year’s college admissions trends and strategies, four-year plans to prepare for high school, SAT / AP/ ACT exams, and financial aid, as well as various summer camps, extracurricular activities, and volunteer service opportunities for elementary, middle, and high school students.
