Brooklyn/Staten Island Independent Schools College Fair for all Juniors

Juniors will be chaperoned to attend this much-anticipated annual college fair. Close to two hundred colleges and universities will be on hand to introduce their institutions to our students—the representatives are usually the very people who read our students’ applications. This is an invaluable opportunity for juniors to get their feet wet in the college search process and to introduce themselves to the various admissions officials at schools they may be interested in. Students will return in time for their after school engagements.

This event has a Google Hangouts video call.

Chat with the College Counselors (for all BFS parents not in the college process PS – 10th grade)

While we spend the bulk of our time with students in the college process, we strongly feel that all parents in our community should
have structured time with us. This is a very casual chat for any and all interested parents. We’d love to address your college related questions, get to know you better, and help you better understand the role of college counseling at BFS. Wine and cheese will be served.

This event has a Google Hangouts video call.

This is a mandatory workshop for all rising seniors. We will go over the Common Application, question-by-question; discuss effective essay topics and strategies for essay writing; conduct a mock interview workshop, and outline what you should complete over the summer.
