College Preview Days Spring 2018

I’ve said be for and I’ll say it again… I love College Preview Days! Mark your calendars for these fanatastic College Preview Days Spring 2018.

I love College Preview Days! Mark your calendars for these fanatastic College Preview Day Spring 2018. 




There’s so many opportunities for your homeschool high school student to consider. There’s no better way to figure out what you want to do and where you want to go–than visiting the campus in person. You can always schedule a personal visit for a one-on-one guided tour or go with a group of friends.

But, I think the preview days are great. It’s great for Freshman and Sophmores who might not know if they even want to go to college. General overview of the campus and the programs is really helpful when you don’t know specific questions to ask. It’s also great for Juniors and Seniors who are trying to narrow down the choices and get a feel for the school community.

Plus there’s free lunch at the cafeteria, too. So what are we waiting for? It’s time for a road trip to check out some of these College Preview Days Spring 2018
