College Counseling Workshop Offered by The Admissions Office


The annual “Applying to College” workshop sponsored by the Admissions Office has been scheduled for Friday, June 9, 2017 of Reunion Weekend at McCardell Bicentennial Hall. High school age children and grandchildren of Middlebury alumni, faculty and staff as well as students from Vermont high schools and their parents are invited.

This program gives an overview of the general selective college application process and does not focus on Middlebury College. It runs from 9:00 A.M. to 12:30 P.M. with registration beginning at 8:15 A.M.

The workshop for students covers 1) The admissions process:  The student’s responsibilities in owning and directing the admissions process and, 2) An admissions office’s responsibility in owning and directing the admissions process. 

The workshop for parents addresses 1) How to be a supportive and effective parent throughout the admissions process.  Sarah Soule, Post-secondary Planning Coordinator at Middlebury Union High School and Tim Pratt ’88, Dean of Advising at Saint Paul’s School will join the parent panel and 2) a presentation and discussion of case studies of college applications.

The student and parent workshops will run simultaneously.
