JPII College Jump Start Program

Main - Athenaeum - Room 2301
The JPII College Placement Office recognizes the importance for you and your parents to have the opportunity to share in the discussion with experts as they present topics associated with your next steps after high school.  Attendees will pick three sessions and will be encouraged to split up so that families can gain more information by attending multiple sessions.  The presenters (college admissions officers from around the country) are speaking on a myriad of different topics and will also share a little information about their universities.  This is the format of the event
