Arguably the biggest decision many teens will make is where they will attend college. At CB, the focus on higher education is huge. But, juniors here are not alone — teachers, counselors, and older students help guide them through the process of looking at, visiting, and applying to colleges nationwide.

On Wednesday March 13, CB will host “Exploring College Night for Juniors,” one of the many informational seminars available for parents and students throughout the year. These events are are crucial for students to “learn exactly what these colleges are looking for and what you need to do as specifically to improve,” explains Director of College Counseling Ms. Melissa McClellan.

“We are having community colleges, private schools, UCs, in state, [and] out of state at this college night,” she says. “So no matter what kind of plan you have for after your senior year, there will be a type of college there that you can get important information about.”

“This upcoming College Night is an opportunity to talk to reps from many types of schools and ask any questions that need answering,” adds Class of 2014 Counselor Ms. Blaire Moskat.

“At the last College Night we explored everything from SAT and ACT to college admissions to exactly what you should be doing your junior year,” she explains. “All the topics covered really help alleviate not only the anxiety of the student but the anxiety of the parents too, because they can sometimes feel like they’re in the dark.”

Juniors and parents will listen to a panel discussion with representatives from six or seven colleges, and then be given a chance to ask more specific questions in 20 minute break-out sessions with each rep.

“You will be able to ask questions about each school and the programs they offer,” says McClellan. “You can see what the requirements are to be able to apply to each school successfully.”

Though College Nights start late and run even later, both staff members highly recommend attending them in order to be better prepared for the long process of applying to colleges.

Exploring Colleges for Juniors and Parents is March 13, 2013 at 7:00 P.M.
