All juniors and their parents complete lengthy questionnaires about their interests and priorities, due by the end of November. In addition, all juniors write a Curriculum Vitae. Through this experience, students begin to track in detail their accomplishments and activities as individuals and students.
In January, Grade 11 students and their parents attend a College Orientation Evening to receive explanations of the college admissions and application process, and determine criteria for selection of colleges and universities in different national systems.
After the college evening for juniors, each student arranges a family meeting with the college counselor to begin discussing the student's personal and academic development, summer enrichment options, and college choices.
In the spring, as practice for the following year, juniors complete a draft of the personal statement or college essay and edit it with the help of the College Counselor.
