College, Coffee and Conversation

From the desk of Celia Tucker, Academic Counselor:

Parents of 8th, 9th, and 10th graders met for “College, Coffee, and Conversation” this week as they discussed the college application process and how to advise their students to be preparing now for what will be coming later. Knowing now  that colleges will require an  application, test scores, transcripts, letters of recommendations, and essays, etc., allows students and parents time to research, record, practice, and plan so that the senior year does not have to be so stressful. The sweetest words faculty and staff  hear are when former Brook Hill students come back from their freshman year of college and say, “ Brook Hill classes were harder than my college classes”. When talking to Ginger Bell recently I told her about visiting with a former student at church who was home for the weekend. I asked him how things were going and he said that Brook Hill had done a wonderful job of preparing him for college. He then paused and said, “The only thing Brook Hill doesn’t do is prepare you for leaving Brook Hill”…I had to get Ginger Bell a box of Kleenex…
