Summer Institute 2020


Summer Institute is designed for secondary school counselors and college admission counselors with two or fewer years of experience. The integrated program fosters a deeper understanding of the interaction between secondary school counselors and admission counselors, as well as expert insight into the current trends and issues within the profession. Participants will benefit from the opportunity to connect and interact with experienced faculty members from high schools and colleges from throughout New England. Through small mentor group discussions, program-specific curriculum tracks for secondary school counselors and admissions counselors, and workshops and group presentations, participants will learn about job responsibilities, communication in the admission/counseling process, recruitment/travel, ethical issues in admissions, financial aid, standardized testing, and advancing through the profession. Networking, through both formal and informal gatherings, is another critical component of the Summer Institute experience.
