Summer College Adventure

Grades 10-12

Sunday, June 9 - Wednesday, June 12

There’s no better way to decide whether a college is a good fit for you than to visit the campus and see for yourself. Our Summer College Adventure will present you with the opportunity to do that at up to six colleges in one tour. Participants will learn what each college has to offer in terms of academic, housing, and student life. It’s a great introduction to different offerings in our region, including liberal arts colleges, medium-sized universities, and large research institutions, so that you can discover not only whether the particular colleges we visit are right for you but what kind of college is right for you. This tour will ensure that you have the essential knowledge you need to make informed choices as you continue your college search.

As part of the Summer College Adventure, participants will receive personalized guidance and college tips from Seabury college counselor Matt Patterson.  Students will receive advice not only on selecting colleges but on achieving the admissions and scholarship results they want.  This tour is suited for rising 10th through rising 12th grade students, regardless of where they are in the college planning process.

Facilitators:
Matt Patterson became the College Counselor at Bishop Seabury in 2004, having previously served as a college counselor and English teacher at St. Anselm’s Abbey School in Washington, D.C. Over two decades of experience have taught him the ins and outs of the profession, and he is known for helping each student at Seabury find the right college fit and secure financial aid/scholarships.

Lisa Leroux-Smith joined Bishop Seabury as the Director of Admissions in the spring of 2022. Previously she served as a Career Services Administrator and Career Counselor at KU in addition to having a rich background in admissions, recruiting, student services, and teaching that she gained from her 25 years at the KU School of Business.
