Catholic High School and St. Joseph’s Academy hosted their twelfth annual College Planning Seminar last night. CHS college counselors, Sherry Brouillette and Jennifer Thibodeaux, collaborated with SJA college advisors, Allison Bruton and Ellen Frazier, to give juniors and parents some great resources going into senior year. CHS senior, Jack Fuselier, and SJA senior, Madi Boudreaux, started the program with advice for juniors that included starting early, doing your research, and staying organized. Joni Leggio from LELA shared information with students regarding paying for college. Bob Mundy from the University of Notre Dame spoke about reasons to consider a selective college, essay tips, and how to make your application stand out at a highly selective college. College counselors from both schools demonstrated how to use Naviance as a college tool, and Dr. Karen Denby from the Louisiana Board of Regents talked about admission to Louisiana’s public colleges and universities.
