|College Visit How-To's|
In order for an absence to be excused for a college visit, students must complete and submit a College Visit Permission Form (available in the College Counseling Office) to the College Counseling Office at least one week prior to the scheduled college visit. The College Counseling Office will retain one copy of the form for its records, and a second copy must be given to the Upper School Secretary for attendance purposes. Students wishing to complete a college visit on the day before or after a regularly scheduled school holiday must get special permission from the Head of the Upper School.
