Join the GT Parent Academy for Navigating the College Admissions Process on November 8th from 7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. in the Mt. Hebron High School Auditorium. This academy is most appropriate for BBMS families with an 8th grader, but anyone is welcome to attend. Preparing for the college application and admissions process can be a really exciting time for students—a time to explore their interests, think about their future and begin to take ownership of their life plans. It can also be a stressful time not just for them but their entire families. In this session, discover how to prioritize the things that can best impact the process, focusing conversations and energy on the things that matter most. We’ll review important steps for preparation, key conversations to have as a family, and the best ways to prepare for the outcomes. Join Joy Scalabrin, Admissions Officer from Johns Hopkins University, as she shares her insights and advice. As an Admissions Officer with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, Joy Scalabrin is the regional representative for Maryland and DC and is involved in the recruitment and selection of first-year and transfer students to the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and Whiting School of Engineering.
