St. Petersburg, FL, January 25, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Shorecrest Preparatory School will host the fourth annual Tampa Bay Case Studies Program on Sunday, January 25 from 1:00-3:00pm. Seven schools from the Tampa Bay area work together to create this unique college admissions program for junior students and their families. This program is not open to the public.
More than 600 students and families from Academy of Holy Names, Berkeley Preparatory School, Canterbury School of Florida, Saint Stephen's Episcopal School, Shorecrest Preparatory School, Tampa Preparatory School and The Out-of-Door Academy will gather at Shorecrest to meet with roughly 60 college representatives, including those from Boston College, Emory University, Northeastern and College of Charleston.
The Tampa Bay Case Studies program is a way for students and parents to understand the application review process by being part of a simulated college admission committee. All participants will receive three application files to read and evaluate. With the help of the invited college representatives, students and parents are divided into small committee groups. These committee groups will be responsible for reaching a consensus vote to admit, wait list, and deny the three applications. Through this exercise, students and parents have the opportunity to see how admission decisions are made and gain valuable insight into this complex process.
The Tampa Bay Case Studies Program began in 2010 creating a unique opportunity for students and parents to learn in-depth about the college admissions process as well as to showcase top Tampa Bay Area students to college admissions officers.
