Counseling Office Hosts College Information Session

Last week, TA’s Counseling Office hosted the first in its annual series of college information sessions. The session, geared specifically toward seniors and their families, covered topics such as: how to navigate the college application process, the basics of applying to college and for financial aid, and how to identify scholarship opportunities.

Counseling Director Mark Pichette also shared information about how colleges evaluate candidates and the latest updates on the role of standardized tests in the college admissions process. If families missed the session or want to review the content again, they can review the recording here.

The Counseling Office will continue this series with an upcoming session with VSAC about paying for college (October 5th, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., virtual) and a workshop on filling out financial aid forms in November (November 16, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.).
