September Newsletter: Freshmen

Thursday, August 31, 2017

Welcome back!

The College Counseling Office believes clear and regular communication makes for a successful college search process. The monthly newsletter serves to provide general information by grade to the Breck community. We ask that you read the information relevant to your child and encourage you to review the entire newsletter to appreciate the scope of the college counseling curriculum. These newsletters are sent via the monthly broadcast. You may find the archived newsletters for this academic year here.

The secret to success is getting off to a great start! While the college process is a long way off, you are developing the foundation upon which you will build your high school career. Now is a time to get involved, try something new, develop good habits and time management skills, and get to know your peers and faculty. 
On Wednesday, October 18, we will offer a Practice PSAT9 test via Cambridge Educational Services. While this provides an experience similar to the PSAT, it is not a test offered through the College Board. This provides a unique opportunity to simulate a standardized testing experience while also providing feedback that should be useful for students and parents.
