This year’s program will feature five deans from colleges across the country. They are Molly Boegel, Assistant Vice President for Affairs and Director of Admissions Programs and Services at Dickinson College; Manuel Carballo, Vice President and Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid at Oberlin College; Lee Coffin, Vice Provost for Enrollment and Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid at Dartmouth College; Branden Grimmett, Vice Provost of Career and Professional Development at Emory University; and Elena Hicks, Vice President of University Marketing and Enrollment Planning at Southern Methodist University.

On Friday evening, the program will be for both students (required) and parents, and we will engage with a sixth-form student panel and deans panel. The program will be completed by 9 p.m.

On Saturday morning, parents will meet with the deans for presentations and round table discussions. This is an exciting opportunity to have direct access to the people who are shaping the class at their institutions. Programming will be complete by 12 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.
