We're excited to announce our College Prep Seminar on Saturday, March 12 from 9:30 am - 12:00 pm in the Main Hall of our New Hope Tutorials campus. This seminar is designed to help you navigate the most important topics of college admissions, including:

what colleges are looking for from homeschool applicants

creating transcripts

student profiles

high school scope and sequence

standardized tests


Q&A with college admissions reps

Come and hear one hour of presentations from college admissions representatives from Gordon College and Salem State University and a variety of experienced homeschool parents and New Hope instructors. Afterward, there will be a robust time of Q&A with a panel of the presenters.

We would like to make this as useful as possible to as many people as possible. To that end, 

we would like for you to take a brief survey

Students and parents are welcome to attend, and you are encouraged to invite those outside of the New Hope community. Please note that Middle School families are encouraged to attend as well, as some of the suggestions made will be most helpful if they are implemented starting in 9th grade. 

Please RSVP by emailing by Monday, March 7. Cost is $5/family, which will help offset the cost of refreshments and honoraria.
