SECOND ANNUAL TRUCKEE TAHOE CASE STUDY PROGRAM, SPONSORED BY SUGAR BOWL ACADEMY IN CONJUNCTION WITH TAHOE EXPEDITION ACADEMY AND NORTH TAHOE HIGH SCHOOL
Norden, CA (September 25, 2017) – This past weekend, 115 high school participants from Donner Summit, Truckee and North Lake Tahoe participated in a College Case study program. Six college admission representatives from UC Santa Barbara, St. Lawrence University, Texas Christian University, University of Chicago, Colorado Mesa University and Santa Clara University lead discussions on what goes into evaluating an application to college. Parents and students evaluated the mock college applications, which included transcripts, essays, tests scores and letters of recommendations. In small groups, parents and students decided who was admitted, denied and waitlisted and submitted their recommendations. Karen Rowe, Director of College Counseling at Sugar Bowl Academy said "I was very excited to have a diverse group of college admission representatives here in the Tahoe region to help show students and parents what’s involved with today’s ever-changing college admissions process. I worked in unison with a great team of local school counselors from North Tahoe High School and Tahoe Expedition Academy, who also recognize the need for more college admissions education. It has been my goal since starting at Sugar Bowl Academy to increase the exposure of our students and I think this case study event, is a great start. We plan on offering this opportunity each Fall, and hope even more families will come next year." The event can be found on You Tube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96_CnplZHgc .
