College Info for Junior Parents

October 11, 2016 2:28 pm

Juniors and Parents/Guardians,

Before we officially begin the college process on the evening of Tuesday December 20th (6:00 pm-7:30 pm) with the ’11th Grade College Kick-Off Night’, I wanted to share with you three upcoming opportunities to get things started over the next two months. In addition to these events below, for the majority of the Class of 2018 taking the PSAT on Saturday October 15th, this is going to greatly help you with the practice and resources you need for getting ready for the SAT this Spring. In addition, with over 80 colleges visiting IACS this fall, it has been great to see many juniors take advantage of these admissions presentations to learn about a range of colleges, admissions requirements and college application tips.

Stay tuned for more information coming soon on the College Kick-Off Night and SAT Prep Classes.
