Through the generous support of IACAC, the College Awareness and Preparation (CAP) committee will again be hosting Camp College, a free program designed for rising seniors. Students who may not otherwise be exposed to college search resources will experience a four-day workshop that includes sessions about: how to research colleges, how to decipher college rankings, how to successfully navigate college fairs, campus visits, and interviews, planning for financial aid, and more. Highlights of the program include a two-part college admissions essay writing workshop, campus tours at a variety of institutions, and a college fair.
Guidance counselors and other potential nominators are especially encouraged to nominate students who are in the first generation of their families to attend college. Camp College 2013 is the fourth annual program and we offer a huge thanks to all of the members who have made worked hard to make this year’s camp even better than the last.
