The Cannon School will host a seminar next week entitled “Getting the Most out of the High School Experience: Creating Opportunities for the Future.”
Anne Shandley, the school’s director of college counseling, and Alex Segura, the school’s associate director of college counseling, will discuss with parents the importance of their children building writing, critical thinking and speaking skills, pursuing extra-curricular interests, as well as curriculum planning and preparing for standardized tests.
Cannon School seniors who live in the Davidson area will talk with parents about exploring their interests and gaining greater self-awareness and how these experiences helped them during the college application process.
The talk is free and open to the public, and begins at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 7 in the chapel of Davidson United Methodist Church, 233 South Main St. Interested parents can R.S.V.P. at www.cannonschool.org/collegeplanning
