Thinking About College?

Parents and Students:  It is never too early to start thinking about College and the Application Process.   The College Application Process can be a daunting experience.

In order to help and  clarify many questions, there will be a meeting on this process.   Wednesday, October 29th starting at 7pm  in Spotswood’s Lecture Room, a guidance counselor, college admission director, parent, student, and a career coach will present suggestions, tips, and advice on getting through the maze of the college application process.  Students and parents are invited.
