Holy Cross Admissions Offers Helpful Tips for Rising High School Seniors

July 2nd, 2014 by 


Summer is officially here, which means it’s the perfect time for high school students to kick their college search process into high gear.

At July Advisory Days, Holy Cross offers rising high school seniors — whether they are planning to apply to Holy Cross or not — the opportunity to attend free workshops to get a jump start on their college applications.

The free workshops include hands-on information on the application process, preparing for an interview, writing a personal essay, and other essential steps.

The program began in 2005 with approximately 200 students, and has seen a steady growth in popularity. More than 300 students attended last year’s program.

Parents and students alike have found the program to be a helpful way to ease into the application process before returning to high school in the fall — and deadlines start looming.

The program is offered every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in July from 1 to 4 p.m.
