Friday Enrichment Series

For 4 Fridays in April and May, the Counseling team will be hosting enrichment sessions on a few different post-secondary  topics including, Extracurriculars in the Time of COVID, Scholarships!, Finding the Right Fit, and The College Application.  We have procured wonderful speakers from UVA, JMU and WAHS to impart great knowledge and advice.  These sessions are generally geared towards Juniors, but they are open to all students and parents.
