Paul D. Schreiber High School will be an extremely busy place on Wednesday, April 21. On that night, college admissions and alumni representatives will be attending the fourth Annual College Consortium.

Each year over 900 parents and students from Port Washington, Manhasset, and Roslyn have come to the high school to meet with the representatives and to acquire information regarding the admissions process and the individual colleges in attendance. The evening will begin at 6:30 with panel discussions. Each panel will be moderated and consists of a strong representation of college admissions counselors who will discuss the key issues regarding the college admissions process, standardized test scores, and current economic factors affecting the college admissions process. Parents will be able to attend two panel discussions during the designated hour. At approximately 7:40, the panel session will end. College representatives and families will then participate in the “college fair” portion of the evening. More than 70 colleges and universities will be represented. In addition, there will be four separate breakout rooms were parents and students can speak to a professional on four topics: Support Services, NCAA compliance issues, HEOP/EOP, and Financial Aid. These breakout rooms will be open during the duration of the event.

Families who wish to attend this program are encouraged to car pool with others due to the limited parking on campus.
