    Junior Parent College Case Studies Night

    Cherokee Campus, Lower School Auditorium
    Want to see how the college admissions process works?  Parents of juniors, along with real college admissions officers, get to participate in the process of reviewing applicants files and determining who gets admitted to a ficticious college and which students get waitlisted or denied. Parents will move into small break-out groups for the discussions and then come together for a final question and answer session with the college admission representatives. Past parents have raved about this event. This event is for parents of the Class of 2020 only. No students please.
