College Planning Workshop

Fairfield Public Library presents

“Mapping your Road to College”

An informative evening with Mary Spiegel

 November 3, 2022   6:30 – 8 PM 

Fairfield Public Libray Rotary Room

1080 Old Post Road Fairfield CT 

Mary Spiegel is pleased to be invited back each fall and spring to the Fairfield Public Library for this presentation.

Mary will meet with teens and their parents to talk about all things college planning!  This program is perfect for parents of all college-bound teens, grades 8-11. *

Students and their parents will gain effective tips and detailed guidelines for mapping out a four-year high school/college preparation plan.  Younger students will learn about making the most of the high school years, how to develop their college list, and using campus visits (real and virtual) and other opportunities to research colleges.

* High School Seniors—who at this time of the year are at various stages in their college applications—are also welcome!  You will gain insight into how college admissions offices read and review the applications, and some timely tips to consider as you finalize your applications and prepare to make decisions.

While this is a free workshop for students and parents, registration is required.

To register visit or call 203 256 3155 and ask for the teen librarian’s desk.

Workshop topics include:

Having a four-year high school plan.

Understanding your academic profile and “how they read my transcript.”

Developing an appropriate college list.

ACT and SAT planning and what the test-optional movement means.

The role of campus visits and interviews.

Recent important trends in admissions, financial aid, and scholarships.

Mary will also answer your individual questions as time allows at the end.
