Family College Weekend

The Asheville School College Office is pleased to host the 2018 Family College Weekend on Friday, February 16 and Saturday, February 17. This program is for the parents and families of our Fifth Form students, but any interested Asheville School parents or families are welcome to attend.

The weekend will give parents and students a chance to talk to college admissions professionals to get a better understanding of the college search and admissions process. Topics include what expect over the next year, how to begin building an application list, and how selection processes works for different colleges. Parents will also have the opportunity to work together to evaluate mock-applications.

This year, we are excited to host the following college admissions panelists for the weekend:
Chris Gruber, Dean of Admission & Financial Aid at Davidson College
Heath Einstein, Undergraduate Admission Counselor at Texas Christian University
Barbara Polk, Deputy Director of Undergraduate Admissions at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill

If you have any questions, contact College Office Director Leah Lambert lambertl@ashevilleschool.org or 828-254-6345 ext. 4202.
