Burris Laboratory School Counseling Center Announcements

August 26, 2016

The pizza party for new middle and high school students is TODAY! All new students should have received information about this earlier in the week.  The high school pizza party is at 11:00 in room 241.  The middle school pizza party is at 12:00 in room 239.  Pizza, drinks, and dessert will be provided.  All you have to bring is yourself!  We look forward to getting to know you better.

The applications for the Lilly Endowment Community Foundation Scholarship are due to the Counseling Center by Wednesday, August 31.  

College Information Night for seniors and their parents is Wednesday, September 14 at 6:30 pm in the Burris auditorium.  It is very important that all seniors be at this meeting.  If you know you cannot attend due to participating in an athletic event, please let me know ahead of time.  Otherwise, I expect to see all seniors at this very important meeting.

Washington University in St. Louis is having an admissions information session on Sunday, August 28, 7-8 p.m. at Sheraton Indianapolis at Keystone Crossing.  Come to the Counseling Center for more information.

Upcoming college visits to Burris include Ball State University at 9:00 on September 9, Franklin College at 9:00 and University of Cincinnati at 10:00, both on September 12, Arcadia University in Philadelphia at 10:00 on September 13, University of Indianapolis at 9:00 and Boston University at 1:00, both on September 15.  A complete list of visits can be found on our website and posted in and outside of the Counseling Center.  Do not forget to sign up at least one day in advance for these visits, and make sure to ask your teacher if you may miss class to attend.

The next SAT administration will be October 1st and the next ACT is October 22.  Interested students should register online now for those dates.  This is the last chance for seniors to test and receive scores before completing college applications.  If you are eligible for a fee waiver or you think you might be, please come talk with me.

If you would like extra practice for the SAT exam you can download the free app, Daily Practice for the New SAT, in the Google Play Store or the App Store.
