Clark Prep Freshman Academy goes to the Ivy League!

Jude, Sada, Jattir and Jules ask questions of the Stanford Dean of Admissions.

This Wednesday, Clark Prep Freshmen had a unique opportunity:  in conjunction with the National Association of College Admissions Counselors conference being held in New Orleans, ABAFAOILSS, the Association of Black Admissions and Financial Aid Officers of the Ivy League and Sister Schools hosted a mini college fair for minority students at Lake Area New Tech Early College High School in Gentilly.
Milena learns more about what Princeton can offer.

College Counselor Ms. Landreneau brought 8 freshmen as part of the Early College Scholars program.  Freshmen got to have an intimate conversation with admissions directors from Dartmouth and Cal Tech about what they should do in 9th grade to prepare for an Ivy League career, then got to speak with admissions counselors from esteemed universities including Princeton, Yale, Stanford, Columbia, Penn, Mount Holyoke, Wesleyan and more!  The attending freshmen will prepare a presentation for the rest of the Clark Prep Freshman Academy as part of CPFA's program of intensive college preparation.
