An Independent Day School for Grades 6-12

Getting to know the Crystal community

Biannually, the College Counseling Office hosts the “Crystal College Colloquium” for Upper School students and all parents in May. On the day of the event, college admission deans and directors spend a half day on campus to get to know the Crystal community via a campus tour, class visits and one-on-one meetings with the CCO. The evening program is a panel discussion about the college search and admission process. The program is designed to give deans and directors of admission an insight into a day in the life of a Crystal student and to learn what makes our community unique; the evening program is a chance for students and parents to gain from the wisdom and insight of the panelists and help inform students’ (eventual) college searches.
