Navigating College Admissions Successfully

 A program for High School Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen and their parents

Ron Feuchs and Jackie Tepper, partners at Stand Out For College, LLC are offering and will lead this Zoom presentation to help families understand how COVID-19 has changed the college admissions landscape and how it affects Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen.

The recent college admissions cycle was the most competitive to date. With most colleges continuing their test-optional policies as well as increasing their virtual outreach to high school students, many schools had record numbers of applicants. Record high numbers of applications result in record low acceptance rates which is what most popular colleges and universities experienced this past admissions cycle.

They will discuss current college admissions trends, the importance of researching and visiting colleges to find schools that can be a good fit for your child, a timeline and other action steps that can be taken to make this school year productive and help reduce the stress around the college admissions process.

They’’ll examine the holistic admissions review process, what admissions officers consider important when they review applicants, and how students can position themselves to develop a compelling narrative to increase their chances for admission.

They will also discuss the importance of community service, how it can provide an opportunity for personal growth and a way to showcase a student’s character. Admissions officers place great emphasis on a student’s character and how the student has been able to give back and help others.

Navigating College Admissions Successfully and the Importance of Community Service

 A program for High School Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen and their parents

This recent college admissions cycle has turned out to be the most competitive to date. The reason is that most colleges went test-optional due to the pandemic and colleges increased their virtual outreach to high school students resulting in a record number of candidates applying. With record high numbers of applications come record low acceptance rates at many popular colleges and universities. As many colleges have announced that they will continue to be test-optional at least in the short term, applicants will face a similarly challenging admissions environment.

In this presentation, Ron Feuchs and Jackie Tepper, partners at Stand Out For College, LLC, will cover how admissions officers are handling the current situation and how students can position themselves to develop a compelling narrative to increase their chances for admission. They will help families understand how COVID-19 has changed the college admissions landscape and how it will affect Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen. They will discuss the holistic admissions review process and focus on the greater consideration admissions officers are giving to extracurricular activities as most students will have had a year and a quarter or more of grades earned during remote/hybrid learning which will carry less weight when applications are reviewed.

They will also discuss the importance of community service, how it can provide an opportunity for personal growth and an opportunity to showcase a student’s character. Admissions officers place great emphasis on a student’s character and how the student has been able to give back and help others, especially during these challenging times.

Rowayton’s Cinema on the Sound Series: Abe (Rated PG)

Enjoy watching these popular movies outdoors with your family, friends and neighbors on blankets or in lawn chairs while staying socially distant! Don’t forget to bring along a picnic basket!

Twelve-year-old Abe is an aspiring chef who wants his cooking to bring people together, but his half-Israeli, half-Palestinian family has never had a meal that didn’t end in a fight. Ditching his traditional summer camp, Abe begins working with Chico, an adventurous street chef who encourages him to think outside his old cuisines. But when Abe’s deceit is uncovered, he must grapple with his family, his background, and his passions to reveal whether even the most lovingly-cooked family dinner can heal old wounds.

Look forward to seeing you at the Rowayton Community Center Lawn for the 7 p.m. showing!

RESCHEDULED – Rowayton’s Cinema on the Sound Series: Coco (Rated PG)

Co-sponsored with the Rowayton Civic Association

We sincerely apologize for the last minute switch, but Coco is RESCHEDULED to Saturday, September 15 on the Rowayton Community Center Lawn. The weather will be a little better and we hope that more people will be able to come and enjoy the film. We very much apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see you tomorrow!

Join us for the final movie in the Cinema on the Sound Series this year. Just bring a blanket or a beach chair and we will supply the popcorn!

Coco is a must see, heart-warming, Oscar winning film for the whole family. Aspiring musician Miguel, confronted with his family’s ancestral ban on music, enters the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer.
