We invite parents to engage with us in our 2022-23 College Conversations, a series of informal morning programs (typically from 8:45-10:00am) on college related topics throughout the year. These programs are intended to provide additional opportunities for Upper School parents to connect with our team and each other about college related concerns, hear more about a specific topic (e.g. the college search, financial aid and scholarships, how to spend summers), and ask any questions.
We have started making plans for our annual College Day program, which is scheduled for April 19, 2023. Parents are invited to attend College Day, and for many families the sophomore year College Day is an ideal opportunity to set the agenda for future college research.

Parents and students are invited to schedule a college meeting with your student’s college counselor. Juniors should be scheduling their next meeting, while freshman and sophomore families who would find it helpful are also welcome to schedule a meeting. (We recognize that the college search unfolds at different paces for different students.)
We are also available via phone, email, when questions or a need for facetime do arise.
