Event description
TOURING COLLEGES FROM THE COMFORT OF HOME

About this event

Touring Colleges from the Comfort of Home: This may be the first generation of kids who’ve had to tour schools in a pandemic, but they’re not the first kids who've had to make decisions about schools without ever setting food on campus. The good news is that, in the last year, schools have only gotten better about providing information online. In this session, we'll talk about how to build a college list and get a good sense of what each school offers from the comfort of your couch. We'll also address how kids can both dig deep and stand out during their college research, and how parents can help students (without nagging) and reduce stress during what is often an emotionally fraught year.

About our Expert Speakers: Adrienne Wichard-Edds is a writer and editor specializing in education and parenting. Her byline regularly appears in national and local publications, including The Washington Post and Arlington Magazine. Ami Foster is an award-winning creative writer who has more than two decades of experience working with college-bound kids.

Both Ami and Adrienne have been teaching and mentoring teens since the '90s and have seen firsthand how admissions in higher education have evolved. As moms whose kids have attended three of Arlington's public high schools, they know the college search and application process can feel overwhelming. With that in mind, they've developed individual coaching methods and writing workshops designed to help kids and parents work together, with the ultimate goal of empowering students to find their voice and take control of their journey to college.
