TKA Juniors Tour Florida Colleges
The King’s Academy College Counseling Office is committed to helping students identify the types of schools they want to pursue as they continue their college searches. Last week forty-five juniors travelled from TKA’s West Palm Beach and Clewiston campuses on a two-day tour of Florida colleges and universities. They visited the University of Central Florida, Rollins College, Southeastern University, Florida State University, and University of Florida. Students attended information sessions conducted by admissions personnel and received walking tours of the campuses. The trip also provided an opportunity to learn about specific college majors, entrance requirements, and the importance of the strength of academic schedules while in high school.
“The tour was very informational and gave me a first-hand look at colleges that I otherwise would have written off my list” said TKA junior Hannah O’Connor. Casey Walker said “I gained a whole new perspective of campus life and now I have a better understanding of what I am looking for in a college.”
TKA College Counselor Robin Carrier pointed out “visiting as many college and university campuses as you can is a great way to learn which college is right for you. Sharing this experience with our TKA juniors is an absolute privilege! Our whirlwind tour allowed students to experience firsthand the character and diversity that each of these institutions of higher education has to offer.”
