High school students and their parents are invited to an informative, interactive, and entertaining presentation to help families understand the role essays, interviews, extracurricular activities, sports, and other factors play in the admissions decisions colleges make.

This program will be held Wednesday, June 14, at 6:30 p.m. at the Rockport Public Library.
