On Saturday, October 6, 2012, CSFP and L.C. Biddle & Associates hosted their third annual High School Workshop at West Catholic High School. The workshop informed attending 7th and 8th graders and their parents about the high school admission and selection process. Speakers from public, charter, and tuition-based schools discussed high school options and readiness, application and testing tips and requirements, high school performance expectations, and the timeline for completing all admissions and financial assistance paperwork. Parents and students also had a chance to meet with representatives from area public, private, and parochial high schools to learn about these schools and discuss specific application procedures. Families in attendance reported that the event provided important information to help them as they prepare for their children’s transition to high school.We were thrilled with the great turnout—thank you to everyone who attended and helped make this a successful event! A special thank you to West Catholic High School for use of their facility.
