Senior College Planning Night - Sep. 29

College
Mark your calendar for Thursday, September 29 @ 6:00-8:00pm for our Senior College Planning Night. This will be a chance to learn about the search process specifically for Class of 2023 (we will offer another event in the spring for 10th & 11th Grade families). This will be an in-person event, but we try to record as many of the sessions as possible and post them on our website after the event. This will be similar to our event last spring, but our welcome session in the Auditorium at 6:00pm will have more specific information to the actual application process. We will use a rotating schedule so students and families can choose the top three sessions that are of the most interest to them. Having more than one family member attend is a good way to maximize gaining information in the following areas: 
  • Finding a Good Fit School: How to improve your search process
  • Financing College: A general overview of financing college (Financial Aid & Scholarships)
  • College Essay Writing: Tips on submitting a strong essay
  • Highly Selective Admissions: Understanding the expectations of schools with more selective admissions 
  • U of M SpotLight School: Applying to the University of Minnesota Twin Cities
  • General Application Support: Understanding the Common App & HBCU Common Black College App
