The Joyce Ivy Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the academic advancement of high-potential young women will host the second annual Joyce Ivy College Admissions Symposium: Expanding Horizons (JCAS) on May 10-11 in Ann Arbor, Michigan at the Washtenaw Intermediate School District Teaching and Learning Center. Participation will be free of charge for high school counselors, community organization leaders, and female high school students and their parents or guardians. The program is supported by the Joyce Ivy Foundation, its donors, and corporate program sponsors.
The comprehensive program will feature college admissions and financial aid workshops for talented young women from the Midwest and their families, as well as high school counselors and community based organization leaders. Admissions officers from highly selective colleges and universities, including Dartmouth, Duke, Johns Hopkins, University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, and Wellesley, will lead the workshops along with local high school counselors who represent the Midwest in national college admissions professional organizations. These workshops will provide an overview and insight into the college admissions and financial aid process at highly selective colleges and universities. Topics will include highly selective college admissions trends, financial aid, and preparing college application components, such as letters of recommendation, essays, and interviews, as well as shared best practices in college admissions and college counseling.
Counselors and community organization leaders interested in attending the Friday, May 10 Symposium, and female high school juniors interested in attending the May 11 program, may register on the Joyce Ivy Foundation website: www.joyceivyfoundation.org. Capacity is limited and early registration is encouraged. Students may be joined by one parent or guardian for the Saturday program.
