Knights Of The Round Table

Thank you to all of you that joined us this morning for our Knights of the Round Table: College Application Q & A with Seniors. Our Seniors provided invaluable insight to the college application process from a student perspective by sharing their experiences of applying to and being accepted by four-year institutions such as Vanderbilt University, the University of Florida, Florida State University, the University of North Florida, the University of Central Florida, the University of Virginia, and  Warner University.  They covered topics such as dual enrollment/AP classes, financial aid, writing admissions essays, college athletics, and how and when to apply.  The Seniors also helped parents and students by answering questions they had about the college application process as well as what Juniors can expect as they transition into their Senior year.  We would like to thank our Senior panel for their willingness to participate in the event.  We would also like to thank our PTSO for providing breakfast items for our attendees- your continued support for our Guidance events allows us to serve Creekside students and their families.
