The Season of Celebrations has begun at Archmere and the College Counseling Office is excited to join in on the fun. Tuesday, May 2nd will be our annual College Decision Day celebration (it’s not May 1st b/c of a full day of AP testing). The day will include a photo booth, Mr. Softie ice cream, thank you note writing, and a class photo on the font steps of Saint Norbert Hall! Seniors should wear apparel from their new schools. It’s always a wonderful day!
As we approach Spring Break, we reach the end of the process for seniors, an exciting time of exploration for juniors, and the commencing of interest for a certain percentage of our sophomores. Really a wonderful time of year full of celebration, glimpses into futures, and growth. While the idiom Hope Springs Eternal means that something is unlikely - in this case it’s incorrect. We see it as a turning of the calendar, a time of rightful optimism!
Digital Testing Webinar - Last week’s webinar by Compass Education Group on the new SAT digital testing format was well attended by sophomore and first-year families (the groups first to be impacted by the change). A video of the program will be emailed out at the end of the week.
This is the time of year in the College Counseling Office that you never know what the day is going to bring. Seniors are still getting admission decisions and doing scholarship searches, we have juniors in class which is sparking a lot of questions, and providing CIALFO to sophomores this past cycle has some of them engaging our office. And as spring quickly approaches (let’s hope), all three classes are discussing future college visits and looking for advise and counsel. It’s a fun time of year!
