Class of 2020

Greetings from the NTPA Class of 2020 Board!

We hope your students have had a wonderful junior year and enjoy a well-earned summer break. As they look ahead to next year and beyond, New Trier's Post-High School Counseling (PHSC) Department is offering the following summer opportunities for rising seniors:

PHSC Summer College Seminars

  • Thursday, June 13: "Navigating College Admission Tests" - offering practical, usable information about standardized testing and college admissions
  • Wednesday, June 26: "How To Know if Early Decision Is Right For You" - featuring a panel of admissions officers from a variety of colleges and universities

Click here for detailed information. Both seminars will be held at 7:00 pm at the Cornog Auditorium (Northfield Campus). Parents and students are welcome to attend.

PHSC Summer Essay Seminars and Common Application Workshops: Winnetka Campus, Room W321.

  • The Summer Essay Seminar is designed to help students complete a strong, polished essay the summer before the senior year, so they can focus on classroom achievement and activities during the fall semester. Various dates in July and August are offered. Please bring a pen.
  • The PHSC Department also offers combination Common Application Workshops and Essay Seminars. Several August dates are offered; students attend only one (no parents, please). Laptop or iPad required.

We would like to recognize and thank our departing NTPA class Co-Chairs, Ami Campbell and Sally Pofcher. Ami and Sally have stepped up to lead the NTPA as Co-Presidents for the 2019-2020 school year. On behalf of the NTPA 2020 Board, we thank Ami and Sally for their leadership, commitment, and dedication.

We hope you have found a way to get involved with the NTPA this year and encourage you to continue to do so next year. To stay current on upcoming events and take advantage of parent opportunities:
