The Art of College Admissions

Discover what it REALLY takes to get into college from professional admissions experts.

Getting into college is a long and often challenging process. Students are trying to figure out how to present themselves as “unique” on their college applications all while keeping up their grades in school, extra-curricular activities, social lives and more.

So, how do families go about beginning to plan for college admissions? The first step for many is gathering as much information as possible! A great way to do this is by attending a college admissions information seminar.  

Join Insight Education at the Hyatt Place Fremont on Saturday, July 21 for our free community seminar on The Art of College Admissions. The 2-hour seminar covers a range topics including recent admissions trends, standardized testing, what ‘holistic admissions’ really means, what you can do to maximize your changes of admissions and an overall look at how the college admissions landscape has changed- and continues to do so! We will also have plenty of time for questions from the audience and time for you to talk with our team of professional college admissions counselors.

Insight Education have been working with families for more than 18 years to guide students through the complex admissions landscape. We firmly believe that high school should be about more than just preparing for college admissions, and as such work alongside students to help shape these important 4-years into experiences that you will enjoy and treasure.  

Make sure to register your seat at the seminar by visiting Eventbrite HERE. The seminar will be capped at 60 people so we have a chance to interact with you one-on-one and share advice specific to your students. Check in is at 9:40am for a prompt presentation start time of 10.00am!

We look forward to seeing you there and if you have any questions before hand, please feel free to reach out to holly@insight-education.net
