Since 2007, College Day has been a staple of the Providence Academy Upper School calendar each April. While it was not possible to host College Day in 2020, we are excited to announce the return of a modified College Day program on Wednesday, April 21.
With travel restrictions still in place for admission staff at nearly all colleges and universities, the traditional college fair in Gym A which typically anchors our College Day schedule will not be possible. On Wednesday, April 21, all Upper School students (Grades 9 to 11) will attend virtual college planning and information panels, staffed by invited college admission professionals, during Pink (1:30 to 2:20 p.m.) and White Periods (2:25 to 3:15 p.m.). We will also share Google Meet access information for these panels with all Upper School parents; look for an email from College Counseling in mid-April with this information. All sophomores and juniors will meet with College Counseling during White Periods this week and will receive instructions for requesting their sessions assignments. Freshmen will receive additional information next week.
Here is a partial list of sessions being planned:
- College Search 101
- Honors Communities
- Navigating Catholic Higher Education
- Military Options
- Intercollegiate Athletics
- Public Flagship Universities
- International Opportunities
- …and more
