Spring College Planning Night
Wednesday, April 13, 2016, 7:00-8:30pm in the Tuscarora Auditorium
The transition from high school into a two or four year college or university can be stressful and starts earlier than you might expect. Please join us for our 6th Annual Spring College Planning night, an evening devoted to helping students and parents learn the nuances of the college planning process.
Our College Planning panel will feature college admissions counselors from the Virginia Tech, Elon University, James Madison University and Northern Virginia Community College. These college counselors will begin the night discussing topics pertinent to the college planning process. After that, we will open the forum for questions from parents and students directed at our panel. We encourage each family to come prepared with general college questions for our panel.
Whether you have "walked this road" before with older students, or you are just starting to learn the process of college planning, we can help!
