Wooster School Presents College Guidance Speaker Series
Posted 09/08/2017 12:43PM

Wooster School is excited to announce an upcoming College Guidance Speaker Series for 2017. As applicant pools expand exponentially with the advent of the Common Application, concerns about tuition costs grow, and questions about the real versus perceived value of the "prestige factor" of colleges comes into sharper focus, parents and students need all the help that they can get to understand how to engage in a process that is healthy, realistic, and designed to maximize the value of the college investment. This fall, as a part of the second installment of its College Guidance Speaker Series, Wooster School will present professionals from a diverse pool of excellent colleges and universities to look at this complex process from different perspectives, helping local students and their parents think more clearly how to best match their search with who they are and the experience they would like to have in college.

Limited seating is available to the general public for these events at Wooster School and can be reserved by visiting woosterschool.org/speakerseries2017.

Join us for this multi-part series aimed at high school students and their parents to help them understand how to engage in a college admissions process that is healthy, realistic, and designed to maximize the value of the college investment.
