Parents, Students Learn About College Search Process

college symposium 2 Dozens of parents and students turned out at Croton-Harmon High School Wednesday night, Nov. 28, to learn more about the often daunting college search, application and acceptance process at the CHHS College Symposium. Representatives from the University of Rochester, SUNY Binghamton, Bespoke Education, CollegeWise, Putney Student Travel, National Geographic Expeditions, and our own high school counselors held a round-robin series of workshops. Topics included writing the college essay, evaluating college applications, taking a "gap year" and student travel, college testing, and using the college search website Naviance.
