College Advising is in Full Swing
College Advising is in full swing; students are learning Naviance, the financial aid seminar is in the rearview mirror, and the list of visiting colleges continues to grow. In the second half of September alone, we are welcoming representatives from 14 colleges and universities! These visits are held during the school day, and allow our juniors and seniors to meet representatives and ask their questions about the college or university face to face. Just today we kicked off "college advising season" by welcoming Hillsdale College, an academically challenging school from Michigan. Later this week, we welcome the University of Virginia, Seton Hall University, and the University of Georgia, to name a few. Representatives travel to visit Trinity Christian from within our home state of Virginia, but also from states spread across the country. Sometimes in the admission process, parents looking to transfer their students from the large public school express concern that colleges will overlook a "small" Christian school. At Trinity, our students are not being overlooked. The reps are visiting, our students are applying, and, most importantly, our students are being admitted to some of the strongest schools in the country. Trinity's reputation of academic success and college preparation facilitates many colleges wanting to be here to meet our students, and wanting our students to be at their schools. As the Assistant Dean of Admission AND a parent of two Trinity students soon heading to college, I rest easy knowing that my children are so well supported in the college application process. Trinity has the reach, resources, and reputation to launch our students to the next level of academic success.
