Senior Parent Night College Application Process 7PM

Mr. Murphy, our Director of Pupil Personnel Service will be hosting Woodbury Jr-Sr High School's annual College Application Process Night for parents of seniors tonight at 7:00 p.m. (Hopefully, the Phillies will have a nice, big, early lead!).

Our counseling department will review the college application process with you, how Woodbury Jr-Sr High School will assist in the process, and what you should be especially careful to attend to in order to ensure a smooth, successful effort.

This can be a stressful time for families, but the "Common Application" and on-line processing can help make this time be a bit more manageable. Learn about these features and understand the deadlines that colleges have when it comes to their acceptance procedures.

Finally -- though the title of the program indicates this is a night for parents of seniors, the program is open to anyone. Parents of juniors (or younger students) may want to come to the session to get a jump on the types of things that will be required down the line. The reality is that the application process for colleges can start as early as the summer before the senior year -- it isn't too early to get a sense for what will be expected of the student and his/her family.

Go Phillies!
