SENIOR YEAR ROADMAP
A seniors-only space to talk about college and tackle college applications.
Seniors, if you are applying to selective institutions or want scholarships, you will likely be finished applying to college by this Thanksgiving! Trying to manage the entire application process while taking challenging courses, participating in fall sports and activities, and trying to enjoy what's left of high school can be stressful. Get a handle on applications and a plan for the fall before the school year begins! Whether a senior has no idea where to start or knows exactly which schools and majors are of interest, this summer session will serve to empower both students and parents to maximize the college process for admission and financial aid.
Students will leave with a completed college application with completed short responses and solid ideas for primary essays; a powerful resume and the skills to keep it sharp; a better comprehension of the college admissions process and how to tackle it; a skill set to search and apply for scholarships successfully; and an action plan for senior year, including application comments, timelines, financial aid deadlines, and more.

DISCOVERING YOUR PATH:
The Davidson Center’s unique opportunity for rising freshmen, sophomores and juniors
to unpack their goals, research aligned opportunities, complete high school must-do’s, and map out a path for the rest of high school. Too many students stress too much (or sometimes too little) about post-secondary plans. This week-long session enables students to calmly, yet efficiently, explore their trajectory in a no-pressure, engaging environment. Both students who have no ideas for life beyond high school and those who think they know exactly what they want are suited for this workshop.
Topics include basic and advanced self-assessments, major/career exploration, resume generation, finding the right college fit, college application basics, and introduction to summer programs. Students will leave with the following: a well-fitted, academically matched list of colleges to explore this school year; a powerful resume and the skills to keep it sharp; a completed practice college application and brainstormed essay topics; a better comprehension of the college admissions process and how to tackle it; a skill set to search and apply for scholarships successfully; and an action plan through junior year.
