Program Overview

Each year Summer Seminar gathers seasoned professionals from both undergraduate admissions and secondary school college counseling to share “best practices” and address each aspect of a college counselor’s responsibilities. Participants will attend presentations as well as visit college campuses throughout the Charlotte area during Summer Seminar. 

Who Should Attend? Guidance or College Counselors who are either new to the profession, have three or fewer years of experience, or would just like a fresh infusion of professional development. So often, expertise in college counseling is acquired “on the job.”

Topics which will be addressed in detail include:

  • Ethics in College Counseling
  • Counseling Models and Calendars
  • Recommendation Letter Writing
  • Relationship/Networking Building in College Counseling
  • Admission Practices
  • Special Talents and Athletics in Admission
  • Financial College

Summer Seminar will provide participants time to reflect, share ideas, and ignite their love for the profession.
