As seniors, CPS students craft their college applications and gain entry into their dream schools. College application season begins as early as August, with most applications coming due in December or January. During this time, students attend workshops to teach them how to craft the perfect resume/application and receive personally tailored editing of their applications. These workshops are beneficial because they are highly collaborative and inspire creativity among students, teasing out the most expressive representation of who they are as applicants.
After applications are submitted, decisions are returned either on a rolling basis or mostly by March. As decisions are received, students, families, and CPS preppers have an exit consultation to determine which offer is best for the student and make the final college decision. Moreover, preppers are available to help students prepare for college life. The path to college acceptance is student-centric and simplified with CPS's holistic program!
