On Wednesday, March 8th, the High School Counselors took the class of 2018 to the National College Fair. The event is sponsored annually by the National Association for College Admission Counselors and the School Counselors of Onondaga and Madison Counties. This year’s fair was hosted at the SRC Arena at Onondaga Community College. Over 200 colleges were in attendance (including two year colleges, four year colleges, nursing schools, business schools, trade schools and the military). Cazenovia High School Students had the opportunity to meet with a number of admissions professionals to discover a wide range of information including Open House dates, majors, clubs & activities, application requirements and in some cases, were able to speak with the actual representative of a college who reads applications that come from Cazenovia High School Students. Attendance at the National College Fair has hopefully resulted in good family discussions about going to visit colleges in person, college selection and things about post- secondary options that are important to your student. Students in the class of 2018 have all met this year with their respective School Counselor either individually or in a small group to start discussing the college application process. If you are the parent of a Junior, your child should be able to articulate the things they need to being doing during this second semester and over the summer to prepare for the application process. They should also be able to tell you what their plans are to get their applications sent in a timely manner next Fall. We know this is a fun, exciting, challenging and at times, stressful process, but your child’s School Counselor is here to make this a manageable task for your student and your family. Feel free to contact your child’s School Counselor if you have any questions.
