This New York Times article talks about the college admissions process.


Visit Colleges.  We strongly recommend that students visit some college campuses before they complete their college lists.

For Juniors - UC Application Webinars - Understand the new essay prompts

Freshman summer webinars on the UC Application and the new UC Personal Insight Questions--which are replacing the Personal Statement this year--are now live. Register now for dates beginning in May! 

Leadership & Environmentalism - Join the Board

Become a Youth Leadership Board Member! This group is for students (entering grades 9 - 12) of all experience levels looking to develop leadership and communication skills as well as work collaboratively on a capstone project based on environmental issues, awareness, and advocacy. In our second year of this program, we are looking to expand our participation and reach.

Interested students should go to to view the calendar, find more information, and to apply online. Meetings will take place on weekends throughout the school year.

The New Coalition Application


Beginning in July, there will be a brand new way for students to apply to certain colleges.  Over 90 colleges have joined the Coalition for Access, Affordability and Success. The good news is that most of the schools in the Coalition will continue to accept the Common Application.  The Common Application has been around for over 40 years and integrates seamlessly with Family Connection, making it easy for your Counselor to send and track supporting documents.  Almost 700 colleges accept the Common Application, including a few new schools next year (Indiana University, University of Wisconsin-Madison and Baylor University).  Given our familiarity with the Common Application and the ease with which it enables us to support your applications, we are recommending that you use the Common Application whenever possible.

There are three schools (University of Washington, University of Florida and University of Maryland) that will be using ONLY the Coalition application, which may require responses to different essay prompts.
