    Camp College 2.0

    Camp College 2.0 is an event for our seniors, the Class of 2022. Camp College 2.0 is an August booster of our Camp College program from earlier this summer. Students will continue working on college applications, discuss 2021-2022 supplemental essay prompts and learn how to register, through Naviance, for BMS fall college admission representative visits. 
     
    We will offer Camp College 2.0 in two formats: in-person and virtually. Students should select one session to attend (the content will be the same in both sessions). As the busy fall season approaches we strongly recommend seniors attend this workshop in either format.

    Session 2: Wednesday, August 11th, 9-11 a.m. via Zoom (link here)

    PSAT 10 Testing (Sophomores Only)

    The PSAT 10 (practice test for the SAT) is purely practice. This is the same test that the juniors took in the fall (the PSAT/NMSQT). It is the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test when taken as a junior (only juniors are eligible for National Merit Recognition). Our hope is that by administering the PSAT 10 in the spring, sophomores will be able to test under more “normal” testing conditions to practice for future standardized testing.
