COMMON APP. BOOTCAMP PREPARES SENIORS FOR THE COLLEGE APPLICATION PROCESS
August 5, 2011
On August 3 and 4, 29 Academy seniors got a jump start on the college application process by participating in the 1st Annual Common Application Bootcamp, a program designed to assist rising seniors in filling out their first college applications before the beginning of the school year. Students completed the Common Application section by section guided by Miss Snead, who answered questions and shared insight into how college admission offices use a student’s information during the admission review process.
The Common Application is a standardized, first-year application form for use at any member institution. Membership is open to colleges and universities that promote a holistic admission selection process. 456 institutions in 46 states, 6 countries, and the District of Columbia are members of the Common Application, including The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, The University of North Carolina at Wilmington, Duke University, Davidson College, Guilford College, Meredith College, and Wake Forest University. More information may be found at www.commonapp.org.
Due to overwhelming interest, additional application workshops have been scheduled for October. Check the Fayetteville Academy calendar for more details.
