Finding Your Way: An Intro to the College Search and Application Process
Monday, February 10th from 7 to 8:30pm.
Please join us for a workshop aimed at students (especially Juniors) and parents, before school break and college visits begin. Students, Is there such a thing as a “perfect fit”? How do you start your exploration and what really matters as you launch the college search and application process? Parents, what role should you play on this journey? How can you provide support, knowing how important it is for your children to take charge and make the important choices for themselves? Cory Alperstein, founder and principal ofFuture Choice College Consulting, will explore these questions and discuss some specific strategies that may help your family survive the admissions process with positive outcomes for everyone involved! Ms. Alperstein will also cover stress reduction, including how making choices early about academic, extra-curriculars and social life is key to managing the stress when the application process really begins. Bring your sense of humor!
Location: Druker Auditorium
