College ADmissions Webinar:  Who Gets INto College and WHY?The SHS School Counseling department (in conjunction with Avon  and Farmington High Schools) is hosting a webinar on March 3 at 7:00 pm with bestselling author, Jeff Selingo. Jeff immersed himself in the world of college admissions to answer the question: how do colleges select their freshman class? The result is his new book “Who Gets In and Why: A Year Inside College Admissions.” In this conversation with Avon, Farmington and Simsbury High Schools, Jeff will dispel the entrenched notions of how to compete and win at the admissions game, reveal why families have much to gain by broadening their notion of what qualifies as a “good" college, and explain how the pandemic will impact admissions. Following the conversation there will be time for questions and answers.

Register in advance for this webinar here.
