Tuesday night, I went to the Jesuit High School Frosh/Soph Parent Counselor Information Night. In addition to a general session with Jack's counselor, I went to two break-out sessions: scheduling and placement for sophomores and Naviance.
Although I picked up one or two nuggets of information, the session with Jack's counselor [Seishas] was not particularly helpful; he used the same powerpoint deck that he used last year. The Naviance session was very good. It is a comprehensive college planning solution that track results for Jesuit students from the last ten years, including GPA and test scores versus acceptance rates by individual college. The scheduling session for sophomores was also worthwhile. The school is changing to a block schedule next year.
