Providence Presents: Demystifying the College Admission Process – 10/17

October 4, 2017 by Elaine Rottman

 Finding the “right fit.” Getting in to the “right” college. Taking the ACT or SAT—or both. Applying for scholarships and financial aid. Going on college visits. Writing the college essay.

The college admissions process can feel daunting and complex. But it doesn’t have to. 

With a four-year, comprehensive approach to college counseling, Providence guides students (and their parents) through the college admission process without giving into fear and frenzy. We embrace taking a series of practical steps with sane perspective. 

We are pleased to offer another in a series of Providence Presents programs, open to the community, this time on “Demystifying the College Admission Process.” Participants will leave this session with many helpful resources and a sense of peace about the process.

We’ve put together a superb panel of experts:  Haley Penton, Providence College Counselor; Joyce Luy, Providence Director of Admission and previous
Dean of Admission at Westmont College (1981-2011); and Sean Smith, Director of Financial Aid, Westmont College.

Private consultants charge thousands of dollars for this information. We are providing it free of charge! To anyone who is interested!

Please join us for an evening of information you can use.

All are welcome! Bring a friend. Bring a neighbor. Bring your student. Bring your parents.
