A-G Night

Secrets of College Admissions.

This seminar will help families separate college admissions fact from fiction and enjoy the college process a little more. We’ll discuss grades, test scores, activities, and everything else colleges evaluate. You will get straight answers about what college admissions committees really look for and how they ultimately decide who gets in. We think you will be pleasantly surprised to learn that students don’t have to be trilingual, opera-singing rocket scientists to get into college today. Come join us on Wednesday, March 1st @ 7pm. This evening event is a great time for Juniors and parents to get a start on their college search and what to prepare for your senior year.

Time: 7-8 pm

Location: Anderson Hall

Mock Exams

Mock exams are a good way for students to discover if they might do better on the SAT or the ACT. Colleges will take either the SAT or ACT scores. Your job is to discover which one you will do better in and the best way to do it is by mock exams. The College Office sponsors different mock exams during the spring semester for $10 per test.
