Mohonasen juniors and parents of juniors are invited to attend Junior College Information Night next Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 6:30 p.m. in the Mohonasen High School LGI. Hear from admissions and financial professionals from local two-year and four-year colleges and HESC, as well as a Mohonasen parent and an alumnus on the college search and application process – from start to finish.

Interested attendees should email or call (518) 356-8322 as soon as possible to RSVP. Please include your name, the number of guests attending and any questions you may have about this event.

Attendees will learn about a variety of topics, including: researching colleges and resources available to applicants; campus visits and interviews; how to determine which colleges are good “fits” – academically and financially; the impact of grades and extracurricular activities; the difference between public and private colleges; transferring from a two-year college to a four-year college; supplemental applications; deadlines; scholarships and more.

In addition, counselors will hold junior conferences beginning Thursday, Jan. 26, and continuing for five weeks after that. If you would like to attend your child’s conference, please contact your child’s school counselor at (518) 356-8322 by Thursday, Jan. 19, to schedule. Conferences will be held throughout February and March.
