Events with Spiegel College Planning



Every fall and spring, Mary is invited by local libraries and community organization to share her knowledge of the college admissions world with local families; she has been volunteering her time offering these classes for nearly 20 years.

These informative workshops will help you understand and prepare for the college search, application and admission steps in front of you.  In the fall semester, these workshops are especially helpful for freshmen and sophomores who wish to get a “big picture view” of the college landscape, and juniors will gain very specific “what should I be doing now” advice. Seniors might pick up some good last-minute insights into how the admissions’ offices read their applications!

The content is the same in every class, so simply pick the night that works best for you and your student(s).  (Note: it is ideal if your student comes to the class with you, but parents are welcome to attend without the student if they are not available.)

Topics include: H
aving a four- year high school plan.  Developing an appropriate college list. Knowing your academic profile. The role of campus visits and interviews. SAT and ACT test taking decisions and planning. “Inside the admissions office—how do they read the application?”  Recent trends in admissions, financial aid, and scholarships.  And much more!
