May 2020 Update
During this unprecedented time of sheltering in place and distance learning, our great hope in the College Counseling Office is that all of you stay safe, healthy, and productive. As always, we are available to meet virtually to support students and families throughout the term. We look forward to counseling seniors through their final college choices as well as supporting juniors in their college search and testing plans.
Common Community Questions
We posed these questions to trusted colleagues at a variety of colleges and universities and share their answers below. Their responses all share the same sentiment and perspective: the foremost concern of these admission professionals is the safety, health, and well-being of our school communities. Further, admission offices have all emphasized their support for our students and our school leadership to adjust the schedule the way we see fit to meet the educational needs and wellbeing of our community, just as they would do for theirs if they were in our shoes. The effectiveness of distance learning is well studied, and our students’ applications will be evaluated with their transition into this period of learning in mind. Additionally, college officials offered support and flexible approaches for students to manage admissions. They provided assurance that they understand and will note for future applications, the limitations of changing standardized test schedules and time away this spring.
