Upcoming Events & Student Resources
Due to continuing concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) we have made the difficult decision to cancel the upcoming Career Expo on March 25th and the Avon-Simsbury College Fair scheduled for March 30th.
The decision was made in light of discussions with school officials and partner agencies and in consideration of the health and safety of all participants given the uncertainty that surrounds the spread of this virus.
All College Rep Visits through April have also been cancelled.For information on more future events, please see our events calendar:
Paying For College
The School Counseling Office hosted our annual Financial Aid Night on October 1, 2019. Our guest speaker from the University of Hartford provided junior and senior students and their families with information about paying for college and completing the FAFSA.
College Knowledge Night
Our annual College Knowledge Night was held on December 10. This informational night provided sophomore and junior students and families insight on the college application process. It featured presentations from Hobart & William Smith Colleges, Northeastern University, Trinity College, and University of Connecticut.
On January 7, School Counselors met with students in grades 9-11 to provide information on accessing and understanding the results of the PSAT and PSAT 8/9. The presentation included information on the role of standardized testing in college admissions, how to access and understand PSAT results, and learn next steps about how to access and utilize CollegeBoard and KHAN practice resources to improve scores.
