What are the benefits of participating in a college Tour?
We believe early exposure to post-secondary institutions allow prospective students the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge and experience necessary to make effective decisions when selecting an institute of higher learning.
Who should attend a college tour?
It is our recommendation that students as early as 10th and 11th grade should attend college tours to help increase their interests in college and to provide a greater understanding of the importance of completing post-secondary education.
What does a college tour consist of?
Most colleges and universities provide a brief overview of the many academic interests they have to offer. Additionally, the students are given the opportunity to visit the dormitories, meet current students and staff.
What does the cost for the college tour cover?
The price is $485. The cost of the college tour includes coach bus travel to and from the colleges and universities, lodging accommodations, and two meals each day. Dinner will be on their own. We will stop at Food Courts for Dinner. The cost does not include additional spending money for food and entertainment.
How are the accommodations made for travel while on the college tour?
We will be staying in Marriott and Hilton properties with four students to a room. You will receive accommodation list at Orientation before we leave.
What do we need to bring on this tour?
For comfort and appropriateness, we suggest you bring comfortable, but appropriate clothing. While visiting the colleges and universities, you will have the opportunity to meet the staff and students, so your first impression should be memorable in a positive manner. Additionally, we suggest you bring items that will provide a comfortable bus ride including headphones books and other items of interest.
Commitment to Safety
We are committed to ensuring all students are monitored and supervised at all times. We have dedicated one adult chaperone to every 8-10 students. We also travel with a registered nurse to administer medicine. Additionally, it is a requirement of that both parents and students sign a Code of Conduct form (Discussed in more detail at the Orientation.)
