Summer opportunities to help with College Application process

Summer is an excellent time for growth and development both in and outside the classroom. The college counselors have listings of many valuable things that students can do in the summertime that involve personal enhancement academically, in leadership, through coursework and programs at area colleges and universities, and in the wider community. In addition, students can build a resume with experiences and challenges, explore interests, and pursue opportunities that will lead to not only a better start to the next school year but offer more possibilities down the road.

College Essay Writing Class for Juniors

We will once again be offering the College Essay Writing Class this summer. The registration form is attached here and can also be accessed through Naviance/Family Connection in the Document Library on the opening page. There are morning and afternoon sessions offered two different weeks. Mr. Bergman teaches the June 5-9 sessions and Mr. Russo teaches the June 12-16 sessions. Space is limited, so sign up soon!

Online Application Boot Camp

Juniors, we're just one summer away from the college application season. These aren't difficult to fill out, but most students encounter a few tricky parts where the correct answer isn't obvious. In order to make the application process as easy as possible for you, the College Counseling Office is putting on an Online Application Boot Camp. This program is free and available to all members of the class of 2018. This program will take place on August 9 from 1­-3 p.m., and again on August 10 from 1-3 p.m. Come join Mr. Boland and Mr. Gunn in the De Smet Jesuit cafeteria for help, advice, and technical assistance with your online applications. All you need to bring is your laptop. Are you confused about how many 1818 credits you've earned or not sure what a CEEB code is or how to find ours? We're here for you.
