College Spotlight: The College of Wooster
Looking for a unique one-on-one learning experience? The College of Wooster may be for you. Located in Wooster, Ohio (an hour south of Cleveland and ninety minutes northeast of Columbus) this Division III school has a liberal arts tradition that dates from its founding in 1866. All seniors participate in an independent study project of their choosing, culminating with the Wooster tradition of an I.S. Parade where all Seniors march and turn in their papers followed by a campus celebration. A private school set on a beautiful campus in a small town (Wooster’s population is 26,000), Wooster is a great pick for the student who really knows themselves and is interested in becoming involved with their school community.

Don’t Let Summer Pass You By!
While many think of the summer as a time to relax, hit the beach and do anything but something academic, summer is the best time to explore potential academic majors and careers. You can learn more about this at your local library. Take advantage of the down time to up your game. You will be glad you did.

Did You Know?
Imagine only sending your best SAT scores to colleges and deleting the rest. Well, you can! Since March 2009 the College Board has offered Score Choice. You can choose one SAT sitting to send to colleges, and hide the rest. This also applies to SAT II Subject tests. Needless to say, college admissions officers have mixed feelings about the program. Some agree that it will take some pressure off high school students, while others will still demand that applicants submit all of their SAT or ACT scores. To read more click here.
"College Search Navigators was able to grasp the sensitivity of my college essay and make it stand out among the thousands received at St. Joseph's University. With their recommendations, my essay captured the attention of the admissions counselors, which enabled me to receive many opportunities that I would not otherwise have been able to obtain.
