College Admissions For the Jewish Soul

Join Amy Shapiro, Director of College Advising at International College Counselors, for a powerful presentation that explores the college process and college application after October 7. Parents and high school juniors and seniors are encouraged to attend.

Jewish students need to feel safe and supported on college campuses. We’ve seen the news, and navigating the colleges and the college admissions process can be stressful and confusing. This free seminar hosted by international college Counselors will help parents of Jewish teenage children understand some of the following:
– What’s changed in Jewish college life since October 7?
– Which colleges reacted “best” and which performed “worst” post-October 7?
– Should my child highlight or hide their Judaism in their college application?
– How do colleges look at participation in religious activities like Jewish youth groups, trips to Israel, and Jewish community service projects?
– In an essay, how should my student frame their Jewish activities?
– What should my student look for when planning their college list?
– What social, cultural, and religious opinions are on college campuses?
– What can I do to prepare my child for college life?
