-Character Counts! Why Courage, Creativity, and Collaboration Matter in College Admissions on 12/9/20 at 2:30pm-3:30pm
What you will learn:
When applying to college, students and parents understand the role of grades, course rigor, and standardized testing. An increasingly important element is Social and Emotional Learning. In this presentation, you’ll learn how SEL distinguishes itself from academic factors and why even the most selective of colleges place an immense value on empathy, ethical behavior, and engagement with others. We will discuss this in relation to course selection, extracurricular activities, and building a smart college list. There will also be practical advice for students who are seeking to understand themselves better and portray the most authentic version of themselves in their applications.
