News: May 1st is Decision Day
May 1st is known as Decision Day for high school seniors. This is the day traditionally that seniors send their deposits in to commit to the university they have chosen.
ERA staff and high school seniors sported college apparel today at school to help spark discussions around college decisions.
This is a great time of year to have these discussions with your Upper School student. It is also a great time to sit down with your student and do some online college exploration. Look for ACT score required to get in, what course work they are looking for regarding admissions, what activities are available on campus, what programs they are known for. Some questions to discuss:
Do you know what field of study you would like to go into?
Do you know of any colleges or universities that you are interested in?
- Is the college or university that you are interested known for any great programs? Does it offer the program you are looking for?
