MARCH 9, 2024 - The IDES OF SAT

This Saturday is the March exam date for the SAT.  Many students have been sent via email, several online mock exams to complete before Saturday.  If a student has not received this email, please advise us.  Practice makes perfect.  Do something many times, you would master your efficiency levels.  Come on Versaners!


This week, there are many attachments.  So many notices from colleges, schools and universities.  Please avail yourselves of the information.  


March is not only the month for SAT but it is usually the month of decisions for Regular Admission.  I must warn that students will receive acceptances, Wait-List and Rejections.  Do not panic - it is what it is and not a reflection of your intellectual abilities.  It is a weird science though there exist a few predictable factors.  This month will herald a few surprises.  The hilarious outcome is that of a student who never could have predicted acceptance to certain schools.  Yet, it happened.  So with bated breath, just hand in there, fingers crossed and a prayer.

Dear Sandra,

We know that at this time of year you are getting questions from your students and families about summer enrichment opportunities. If you have students who have a passion for politics, we would like to introduce you to a dynamic summer pre-college program on the campus of Salve Regina University in seaside Newport, RI.

The Summer Institute for Politics is offered through the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy at Salve. The Pell Center is a leading think tank focused on a variety of issues including promoting bipartisanship, restoring the power of local media, and the role of media in democracy. This week-long, residential program will expose students to many opportunities in politics and how their generation can help our country move past the cynicism sometimes associated with political discourse.

WHEN: July 14 – 20, 2024

WHERE: Salve Regina University, Newport, RI

This program is designed for rising juniors and seniors (current sophomores and juniors) and is offered at a reasonable tuition of $2800 which covers costs of the program as well as overnight accommodations and meals.

Please share this program with any of your students who would benefit from this opportunity. Thank you for all you do!

Nova Southeastern University Visit to Kingston March 15-16

I'm excited to announce that representatives from Nova Southeastern University will be in Kingston on March 15-16 to meet with applicants and their families for the second year in a row!  This year we'll be bringing Rachel Leidemann, from our Transition Support Team.

This is a great opportunity to learn, in-detail, all of the steps international students must take to attend NSU and for you to ask any questions you might have.  You'll also have the opportunity to meet other incoming students to NSU and their families!

Please note that there are only 50 seats available for each session so students can only register for themselves and one family member here:

For those of you unable to attend on Saturday, we will also have some slots available on Friday, March 15 to meet one-on-one for 20 minutes.  We will be holding those sessions in the lobby of the Courtyard by Marriott and you can register here (Friday, March 15 only):

Summer is a great time for students to set themselves up for a successful college search and application process. Below we’ve included some resources your students can use as they plan their summer break. We encourage you to share these tips with your students and their families.

3 tips for a productive summer


College search

Start the college search by reviewing college admissions websites. Your students can explore these websites to see a quick overview of each college’s academics, community, and admissions process.

  • Hopkins offers application workshops, including Breaking Down the College Search, where students can learn how to identify which college characteristics are most important to them.

  • Our College Planning Guide has resources for your students to help them navigate the college search process, craft their strongest applications, and make decisions that are right for them and their families.

  • For students who want additional support and meet the income eligibility requirements, Matriculate is a free program where they can virtually connect with an undergraduate advisor on all aspects of the college and financial aid application process.


Emphasize the importance of getting involved. Your students can consider ways to extend their impact beyond school like volunteering in their community, working a summer job, or participating in college summer programs. Hopkins offers several programs, including Summer at Hopkins and Engineering Innovation, where they can meet like-minded peers and dig deeper into their interests.

Participation in a summer program at Hopkins does not give an advantage to applicants during the admissions process.


Encourage your students to attend virtual or on-campus events. Hearing directly from an admissions counselor or current college students can help high school students get a sense of what the university values and what kind of students thrive in their community.

  • Hopkins Preview: Students can join us on campus to dive deep into all things Hopkins. This two-hour program includes an information session, student panel, and campus tour.

  • Virtual Information Session: If your students aren’t sure where to start, this virtual session provides a comprehensive introduction to Hopkins. A member of our admissions committee will go over academics, student life, financial aid, and the application review process.

  • Virtual Admissions Q&A: Your students can get all their questions answered in this open session with an admissions committee member. We’ll share requirements and deadlines and how transcripts, essays, letters of recommendation, and other pieces of their application come together in our process.

Counselors interested in attending these events should sign up through our Counselor & Educator Event Options.

In Admissions, we are nearing the end of application reading season, and look forward to meeting the Class of 2028 at our admitted student events this spring.Alongside this work, we've begun accepting spring college fair and case studies invites and hosting junior students and families on campus.
