The Jan. 16 PTSA program will feature speaker Marty O’Connell. Ms. O’Connell’s college admissions career spans more than three decades. As a dynamic national speaker, O’Connell’s efforts to educate students about finding the right college or university and to calm the frenzy surrounding the admissions process have earned her the respect and admiration of colleagues. Her college admissions advice has been featured on National Public Radio, MSNBC, and in the New York Times.
Too often the media stories scare students and parents as they approach the college search process, but this should be a joyful time, not a high stakes game which neglects the individual fit. Find out why this happens and how the process can be approached with a focus on the student--not the rankings and ratings--in order to determine a great college choice. The Jan. 16 meeting begins at 6:30pm.
