Welcome to Astoria School Symposium!

What began as a conversation among local moms at play-dates to make the best educational choice for their kids, has evolved into a formal event to help others in the community become knowledgeable about educational options in a supportive environment.

This desire to share in the knowledge and educational experience turned into the Annual Astoria School Symposium bringing together as many of the educational solutions for local families. The event is delivered through two parts (1)  an open fair where  private and public school/program representatives are made available to the community to ask questions and (2)through special topic presentations to educate the community on topics of interest.
