March Madness at CCA High School is here!

CCA high school students & parents from Leigh Bell, HS counselor:
The high school at CCA is getting ready to have our own March Madness for our high school students and parents with regard to March events centered around college educational options.
I have reached out to well over 10 colleges/universities to set up private visits for our students and parents in order to bring the admission officials directly to you. In the month of March, we are hosting:
1) private visits from various college admissions officials who have committed to come out and talk about their college/university (Campbell Univ., ECPI, UNC-W, UNC-G, Guilford College, NCCU, and GTCC), so PLEASE RSVP using Sign Up Genius links provided & bring your questions for these officials.  Here’s a March calendar with dates markedMarch Madness calendar of events
2) CCA is hosting a Financial Aid meeting as well. Students and parents are welcome to attend all of these events.
3) Additionally, there are 2 National College Fairs in Charlotte and Raleigh in March that I have registration details for all of you. These are events that perhaps student(s) and their parent(s)/guardian(s) can attend together and/or a group of students & parents/guardians could attend together and carpool. I’ve also included a March calendar with all of these dates listed as well as some good websites and attachments that provide good information as well.
