Dear Juniors and Parents,
We hope this email finds you well. See below for some important and timely announcements:
Questionnaires
Students: Please complete the Junior Intro Questionnaire as soon as possible. Fill it out carefully, thoughtfully, and in its entirety so that your counselor will get to learn about you and perhaps more importantly, by exploring these questions, you will learn more about yourself. Once your questionnaire is complete, you may request meetings with your college counselor. Students should be meeting regularly with their college counselor for the rest of the school year.
Parents: The Parent Questionnaire is a great way to share your insights into your student with us. We also encourage you to share any hopes, expectations, parameters, or concerns ahead of your parent or family meeting. We hope you will complete the questionnaire and join us for a meeting in the near future.
Flatbush College Night Coming Soon
Representatives from colleges will be present online to speak with Flatbush students and families about their colleges and universities. This is a fantastic opportunity to explore colleges you might not have otherwise considered and meet the people who might be reading your applications! There will also be an admissions panel intended to shed light on the college application review process. You don’t want to miss the program! Click the invitation for more info and to RSVP.
Campus Visits and Upcoming Events
We encourage you to visit (either in person or virtually) several prospective colleges. This is the best way to get a sense of whether or not a school could be the right fit for you. Check out colleges' admission websites to register for virtual tours or events or to sign up for email lists.

Scholarship Alert
It is never too early in high school to begin searching for college scholarships! We recommend setting up accounts on search sites like Fastweb or Going Merry. These sites have large databases of scholarship opportunities available for high school students.
For example: We The Students is hosting an essay competition for high school students. Sixteen student winners will receive a total of $20,000 in scholarship prizes. More details including rules and regulations can be found on their website. Essay prompt is: How does an understanding of natural rights and respect build a free society? Deadline is April 15, 2022.
Standardized Testing
As you know, the pandemic caused many colleges and universities to implement test-optional admission policies. We have maintained a document with the most up-to-date info for the Class of 2023, which can also be found on colleges’ admission websites. For your convenience, we are keeping track of many colleges on a sheet here.
Registering for SATs and ACTs
SAT: The very first time you register for the SAT, you must submit College Board’s online form and upload a completed clergy letter. Please get a clergy letter from the College Guidance Office. Click here for instructions for first-time registrants and to complete the form to switch to a Sunday test date. This process takes days to complete. Do NOT wait until the last minute to register!
