Middle school students look ahead to college during Middle School College Week
Middle school students were given a glimpse into the college world this week as CPA Middle School College Week took over the school. Hallways adorned with college paraphernalia, students wearing their favorite college T-shirts, college trivia, presentations from the CPA College Counseling team, and a school-wide tailgate party gave students an exciting preview to college life and the pre-admissions process in high school.
During the week, faculty shared insight into their own college decisions and experiences with students, helping the students think through important factors of the pre-admissions process. Students asked questions about college culture, how to select a major, vocational calling, scholarships, financial aid, and more. CPA’s College Counseling team visited each grade, presenting on the college selection process and timeline in high school.
“College Week is a time for us to cast a vision for the days ahead. We want our students thinking with intentionality in their studies and in their daily lives as they consider their futures. As fun as the festivities are, the week really emphasizes anticipation of the next step,” explains MS Director of Student Services Jean Young.
