Asheville School's Annual Family College Weekend

Each year, the Asheville School College Office hosts Family College Weekend. 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.

Family College Weekend gives 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 the selection process works for different colleges. Parents will also have the opportunity to work together to evaluate mock-applications.
