Over the last month, we at Avalon have been diligently gathering information to share with our community and families who have entrusted us to guide them through their college preparation and application process. As disruptive and frightening as this pandemic has been, it is imperative – now, more than ever – that we do not allow fear and uncertainty to prevent our students from learning skills and preparing for college in a manner that will be crucial to their future success.
As guidelines and timelines continue to change, we hope the information below will provide up-to-date information to help you navigate over the next few months as seniors decide their college of choice and juniors pull together the final key components to their college applications. Pay close attention to the resources offered below and always feel free to contact us with your questions.
