    Monthly College Counseling Update: April 2022

    Season of Celebrations for the Class of 2022!

    We’ve reached the end of one journey and the beginning of another as the majority of seniors have made decisions about where they will continue their educations. About 70 seniors attended our second College Counseling Coffee during Work Period on Tuesday, sharing information about their spring break visits and raving about their college choices. It is indeed a wonderful time of year.

    Next week the Class of 2022 will participate in a reinvented senior career program. The pandemic has made guaranteeing job shadowing unlikely. This year we will roll out our first Young Alumni Panel during April 6th's Green Day. We will be welcoming six alumni who will discuss their college experiences, forks in their education and career mindset, their early career trajectory, and where they envision their futures. The day promises to be educational. Thank you to Catherine Reigner for coordinating the career and alumni event.

Enjoy any final visits, good luck with the application decisions you have yet to receive, and we’re excited to learn where you decide to call home for the next four years.

  • Novel Thinking About Admission (Entry 3) – College Search Experience Develops Pedigree

    Chris Boehm
    Inspiration taken from Pedigree – how Elite Students get Elite Jobs, by Lauren Rivera.
     
    I read to find nuggets of inspiration to make me better at my job and help our students with their college process. It’s amazing how, with an open mind, you can find resources that apply to the college process in almost anything you read. I trust that my peers, parents, and students navigating the college search and application process will find it thought-provoking and perhaps, just maybe, useful.

    Monthly College Counseling Update: January 2022

    Seniors

    Semester grades should be finalized during the first week of February and forwarded to all schools to which students have an active application, unless the school required a self reported transcript. If the student self reported their grades in the application and we did not send an initial transcript, applicants should look for direction on how to submit semester grades in their application portal or emails from the college. We will email all students once all report cards have been sent to colleges. For students awaiting a decision, this is an excellent opportunity for a point-of-contact with the admission offices to show interest, excitement, and hopefully the success of their first semester.
