Being part of the first College Day for Baltimore County Public Schools could not be simpler. On Thursday, Feb. 6, all community members, students, parents, businesses, and staff are invited to wear appropriate attire celebrating a college, university, fraternity, or sorority. Students are reminded to follow the Student Handbook .

“I look forward to sharing my appreciation and enthusiasm for my own alma mater, Hampton University, with the entire community on College Day,” said BCPS Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams. “As we prepare every young person for a rewarding career, we know that most jobs now require at least some postsecondary education. College Day is just one way to show each student that they, too, are college material.”

On Feb. 6, families and fans in schools, offices, and businesses may share photos of their collegiate attire using the hashtag #BCPSCollegeDay or by emailing

The newest part of the We Are Team BCPS campaign, BCPS College Day aims to bring the community together. The campaign begins each school year with Back to School Involves You, Too!, January’s Team BCPS Day, and the annual Haiku Contest held during March.
