College Rep Visits

During the fall, colleges send admissions representatives to our school to inform and recruit prospective students. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the school, gain insight from an expert on the subject, and make a personal connection with one of the people who will likely be reading your application. This year we will be doing things a little differently and virtually meet with these college reps via Zoom. More will be added so check back often!

Please RSVP by clicking on the college(s) that interest you and filling out the form. The link to join the Zoom meeting will be emailed to you the day before the scheduled meeting.
