What’s New in College Admissions? 

Pretty much everything!  As our world changes, colleges are making adjustments. Graduating seniors may see a new academic calendar, which may impact your travel plans.  For high school students in the Class of 2021, and even the two years younger, that means changing admission requirements for testing, among other components of the application process.

Magellan’s 12 counselors have our ear to the ground and are staying up to date on all upcoming changes!

College Admissions Testing
  • Some colleges are making the decision to not require the SAT or ACT for the Class of 2021, and some for future classes as well.
  • Should your student still take the SAT or ACT?  Will they benefit from a test-optional process or not?
  • It depends.  Call us to discuss.
Host A Virtual “College Info” Seminar For Friends

Are your friends starting to think about (read: get anxious about!) college?  Please get in touch if you are interested in hosting a college admissions information seminar for your parent friends.  We can tailor our presentation for parents of 8th, 9th, 10th or 11th grade students, or a combination.


Our service is not for everyone, but some parents feel they and their student would benefit from additional hands-on, personalized assistance as they navigate the college admission process.  If this feels like something you’d like to have for your child, please give us a call.
