Fifth-Form Parents Program

Friday, Jan. 21, 2022

We welcome you to campus on Jan. 21 for this important and informative event during which you will learn all you need to know about your child's college process.

The morning program features roundtable sessions (for parents only—optional) with the five deans of admission who will be joining us for the day. They are Kirk Brennan, Director of Admission at the University of Southern California; Claudia Marroquin Senior Vice President and Dean of Admissions and Student Aid at Bowdoin College; Kevin Mathes, Dean of Admissions at Bucknell University; Yvonne Romero da Silva, Vice President for Enrollment at Rice University; and Gil Villanueva, Associate Vice President and Dean of Admission at the University of Richmond.

After lunch, fifth-form students (required) will join in as we engage with a sixth-form student panel, mock admissions exercise, and deans panel. The program will be completed by 5 p.m.

In the weeks following the program, your child's counselor will be offering meeting times via Zoom to have a one-to-one conversation on your child's college process. 

In preparation for the weekend, please fill out the "fifth-form parent survey" located in Maia* in the parent dashboard.  This information will be enable us to best serve your family's needs as your child begins the college process.

Please answer the following question: If there is one thing you would like to tell your child as he/she begins the process, what would it be? Your answer will be anonymous, but since we plan to cull them all together into one handout, please be brief. We look forward to hearing your answers!
