College Counseling Events
Senior Boot Camp
The senior boot camp is held in August each year and officially launches the college application process. Each senior receives their college booklet that will aid them throughout their senior year in the college process. Information pertinent to the college application process and the students’ senior year as a whole is discussed. More information about the senior boot can be found HERE.
College Representative Visits
During the fall and early spring admission representatives from colleges around the country visit with Geneva students. It is a privilege to have colleges and universities take time to visit our school. Rhetoric school students are encouraged to review the list of visits in their Naviance account and attend accordingly. Visitations are scheduled during lunch in room 111 unless otherwise noted. If you have any questions, please see Mr. Thigpen.
Visits are posted on the calendar and announced to students in morning announcements, and also listed on each student’s Naviance page.
FASFA … and all things Financial Aid Informational Meeting
The Geneva School’s annual college financial aid meeting is held in the fall at the main campus. This event is primarily held for parents of seniors who will be applying for financial aid on behalf of their son or daughter in the weeks following the presentation. Senior students are encouraged to attend with their parents. Freshman, sophomore, and juniors parents, as well as students, are also welcome to attend.
The rules of the financial aid game are forever changing, thus we have created the perfect opportunity for parents and students to address questions and concerns following a presentation given by an expert from a university/college Office of Financial Aid. All aspects of financial aid will be addressed.
The financial aid process can seem daunting, even for the bravest of souls, and at the very least confusing. While all interested parents are welcome, we strongly advise all parents and students in the junior and senior year to make every effort to attend.
Students and parents are encouraged to attend area college fairs which are held in the fall and spring.
