Deciding where you will go to college is one of the most important and exciting things you will do while in secondary. You will have many questions regarding the entire college selection and application process. You may be wondering about which colleges will be a good match for you but also which ones will be interested in you. The answer is that many colleges will! Bear in mind, colleges are recruiting and seeking students just as you are selecting a college.

Furthermore, the American Academy is hosting college every year to enable students to talk to college representatives and to “sell themselves” for the upcoming competitive college admission process. In any case, students end up finding the right college match. The college selection and application process is the beginning of a life adventure. So put passion and motivation into your life project and the process will definitely be an easier and more enjoyable experience!

You will just need to prepare yourself ahead of time to give yourself the best chances in order to make the best choices for yourself. You will also need to get organized and be very responsible.

The Honor Code

The principles of the Honor Code are nowhere more important than in the college application process.  Neither AAC nor any college in the world would tolerate any falsification of information on the application or cheating, such as plagiarism on the essay. Such violations may seriously jeopardize your acceptance. Thus, a student’s character and integrity are extremely important to colleges. Moreover, AAC must maintain a relationship of trust and total honesty with colleges if we expect them to believe and act upon our recommendations about our students.
