Greetings from Allendale Columbia School’s College Advising Office! Students in grades 6-10 and their parents are invited to the Knowledge for College Program on Tuesday, March 20th, at 7:00 p.m. in AC’s Curtis Performance Center.
This program was created for families in grades 6-10 to provide an overview of the college search and application process and College Advising program at AC. The program includes a panel of college admission counselors from Alfred University, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, SUNY Geneseo and Syracuse University who will offer advice to families during these pre-college years and answer questions about the college search and application process. This event is an excellent opportunity for students and parents to learn about the College Advising Program at AC and to become educated about the current college admission landscape.

On Friday, March 21, Kristin Merriman, AC’s College Advisor, gave an Upper School Mini Assembly on “Enjoying Your Summer Wisely.” The summer months are an excellent time for Upper School students to continue to pursue meaningful activities ranging from volunteer experiences or summer college programs to part-time work experiences or career shadowing opportunities. Upper School students are encouraged to pursue at least one meaningful experience (or more!) every summer because these experiences will be assets both in the college search and college application process. Students are encouraged to plan ahead and to consider all of the resources available here in Rochester and possibly beyond. Click here to view the presentation; Ms. Merriman is happy to help students brainstorm possible meaningful activities for the summer and has resources in her office for families to use.
