College Interview Day
A Message from the Counseling Services Department:
|Saint Basil Academy was host to 35 colleges and universities on Monday, April 15th , with many colleges and universities providing more than one representative. The day provided a wonderful opportunity for our junior students to meet and discuss potential applicant status with the various schools. Students were asked to select 5 schools from the list provided and most schools were 'booked' from 8:45am until 3:00pm. The students, although anxious at first, embraced the day and actually approached other schools not on their lists to acquire additional information. This opportunity provides a wealth of information for our students as they initiate and/or continue their college search process. Many thanks to Linda Smith, our College Counselor, and Carol Abel, our Guidance Office Assistant for overseeing and organizing this event!
Any senior who has received college letters of acceptance, please bring those letters to College Guidance. We will be happy to copy them and return the originals back to you.
