Senior Family College Evenings
College Night with the School Counselors: September 18th 6:00-7:00 pm
Financial Aid and College Financing: September 19th 6:00-8:00 pm
Dear Parents & Guardians,
The Thornton Academy School Counseling Department will be hosting a Senior Family College Night on Monday, September 18th at 6:00 pm. This event is intended to help senior parents and students navigate the, sometimes complicated, college application process.
We will provide an outline of what to expect over the next few months and educate you further about Naviance, which will be the major communication tool for the entire college application cycle. Being informed is the best way to help guide and organize your student as he or she moves through the process. You will have plenty of time to ask questions after the presentation.
The following evening, on Tuesday, September 19th at 6:00 pm , the Finance Authority of Maine will present a Financial Aid and College Financing presentation designed to prepare families to navigate the college financial aid process; complete financial aid forms and determines the best way to pay for college. We will look at key strategies to minimize the cost of college and maximize college savings. You will leave with many practical tools and resources to help you best prepare.
Please join us on these two evenings for what we hope will be informative and productive sessions.
Jeff Camire, School Counselor
Abby More, School Counselor
Kelsey Ramsey, School Counselor
