Finding a Fit College - A Note from Mrs. Gibson

10th-12th Grade Students & Parents - If you are college-minded and have an hour, I encourage you to watch this helpful video: "Tips on Choosing a Best-Fit College and a Major." I have been in touch with both panelists, one from Messiah College and the other from Delaware County Christian School. Their information is presented in a clear and succinct manner. The only aspect of their webinar that was not emphasized is the importance of considering the "spiritual fit" of a college or university. To address that important conversation, I have attached my own document on finding a "Fit College." I would be happy to discuss any of these ideas with you; simply reach out and we can schedule a time to meet.
