CSIHSIS Hosts First Annual Junior College Breakfast

Thanks to the work of our Guidance Counselor, Ms. Marie Mammaro, this morning we hosted our first annual college breakfast. Junior students and their parents were invited. Those who attended received the "hot off the presses" CSIHSIS College Handbook as well as other valuable information about the differences between SATs and ACTs, the SAT Subject Tests, and a host of websites to help begin the college search and application process. Students and their parents also learned how to access and use the College Board website to do a college search. Allan Katz also gave a wonderful and informative presentation about financial aid requirements, the different types of aid available, how to obtain the forms that need to be filed, the differences between public and private universities and financial aid, and information about how to locate scholarships. Students and their parents then visited the Big Apple College Fair in the CSI Gym.

For those of you who did not attend, we missed you! For those of you who took advantage of this opportunity, we would love to have your feedback about this event. Please tell us what worked well and what we can do better to improve upon this event for next year!

This is from a junior parent who sent me an email about the breakfast!

"loved it! I thought the presentation was really good and I heard a lot of interesting things. I was a little disappointed with the turn out since you guys worked so hard to put it all together. Glad we came too!"
