Virtual Program: Navigating College Admissions Successfully
Wednesdays, February 15 & March 15

7:00 PM (come to one session)

We are offering this Zoom presentation to help families understand how COVID has changed the college admissions landscape and how it affects Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen.

We will discuss current college admissions trends, the importance of researching and visiting colleges to find schools that can be a good fit for your child, a timeline, and other action steps that can be taken to make this school year productive and help reduce the stress around the college admissions process.

We’ll examine the holistic admissions review process, what admissions officers consider important when they review applicants, and how students can position themselves to develop a compelling narrative to increase their chances for admission.

This program is recommended for parents and their high school teens.

February 15 / March 15

The presentation will be led by Ron Feuchs and Jackie Tepper, partners at Stand Out For College, LLC

Wanted: Dungeon Masters

We need volunteers (teens are welcome) to create/run D&D campaigns (held indoors) with small groups of middle schoolers once a week.
