Visiting Colleges Status
Many of you are probably wondering how the coronavirus epidemic might affect your ability to visit colleges during spring break. At this time, we know that several universities have suspended open-house events and tours of their campuses; the situation seems to be changing on a daily basis, and there are likely to be more closures announced. Please make sure to check each campus's website to confirm that they are still offering tours. We predict that colleges will put extra resources into making more robust information available (video-based events, and the like) for those who cannot visit their campuses.

Parents of Seniors
If your daughter has received merit scholarships from colleges, please let us know by filling out this google form . We carefully track this information so we can help future students identify colleges that are generous with merit aid. 

Upcoming College Rep Visits
Encourage your daughter to sign up on Naviance to attend a college rep visit.
