What is Critical Components?

Using a collaborative approach, it moves well beyond the basics to tackle the most disruptive issues faced by students in the college admission process. You will receive tangible solutions to make an immediate impact in your school, practice or community.

What attendees are saying:

“I found this conference to be of the highest caliber, inviting top national people to be the presenters and the information was professional and educational. I found myself taking notes on my ipad and turning around and emailing them to my colleagues back home!”

“I learned so much in such a short space of time! I was told by veterans in the field that this was one of the best conferences they have ever been to, so I am so thankful for this to have been my first one.”

“This should be required of all secondary counselors.”
