Remember, It's Their College Years, Not Yours

written by: Jed Geary, Director of College Counseling
As the recent college admissions scandal continues to unfold, I find myself intrigued by all the moral, ethical, and legal layers involved. I am shocked and saddened by this scandal. As an educator I want to prevent the students and parents I work with from ever having a mindset that would place them in a situation where this type of behavior would ever be a consideration. 

This article featured on March 16th in the The Wall Street JournalRemember, It's Their College Years, Not Yours—by Sue Shellenbarger, is a great start to helping parents be more introspective as they consider the college search and application process with (not for) their children.
