You can get involved with the admissions process

With the new faces and ideas brewing in the admissions department, Norfolk Collegiate is excited to encourage current families to get involved with the admissions process.

Parents can help by spreading the news about their Collegiate experience to community members, family and friends.

Just as a well-oiled machine runs, everyone is encouraged to work together and contribute their best efforts.

“The Collegiate community is truly a family, and it takes a family to promote its strengths,” said Mary Peccie, director of admissions.

One of the goals for the new admissions team is to add a generous and personal touch to the admissions process. Parents are encouraged to add their personal touch also.

Collegiate is preparing to host its K-12 Open House on Sunday, Nov. 15, at 2 p.m. with another event to be held at the beginning of the year on Sunday, Jan. 10, 2016.

Selecting a school that is the right fit for a child is extremely important to families, which is why our admissions team is dedicated to guiding families throughout the process.

“The team is ready to help potential families through the entire process, one step at a time, from the families’ initial interaction with the school and throughout the application process,” Peccie said.

The open house is a two-hour event that will allow future Oaks the opportunity to explore our campuses in a casual atmosphere. The Carolton Oaks Society, which is comprised of current Collegiate students, is ready to provide guided tours to prospective students who also have the opportunity to shadow a current student for a day to understand the Collegiate experience first-hand.

“Parents are encouraged to join the admissions team in its efforts to share the news about Collegiate,” said Peccie.  

Current families can receive $500 off of their tuition by recommending a student to enroll through the Grow an Oak Referral Program. Through the program, if the student attends Collegiate for at least one semester, the referring family receives $500 toward its tuition.
