Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your College Visits

Attending a college prep school is a great way to help you prepare for college. You still need to schedule some campus visits, though, to get a better sense of how a potential college can truly benefit you once you attend.

As you will discover in this video, college visits are great, but they may not always be as informative as you might think. You can go through an entire campus visit and still not learn about the school’s academic offerings. To supplement your visit, sit in on a class or two. You can see how some professors promote certain learning styles in their curriculum. This will help you make an informed decision after graduating from prep school.
