High School Students

Ever wanted to know why high school students make the decisions they make? You’re probably thinking, "If I knew the answer to that, my job would be a LOT easier!" The Imagine America Foundation wants to help you. We are excited to present "Understanding the High School Student," a new seminar offered in collaboration with the National Research Center for College & University Admissions (NRCCUA), the nation’s authority on high school students' attitudes and educational aspirations.

With a survey database of nearly 5.5 million high school students, NRCCUA is the expert on high school students. This seminar, co-presented by the Imagine America Foundation and NRCCUA, will present the latest data on high school students, including information on when they are making college decisions and what the major influences are in those decisions

Designed specifically for colleges, "Understanding the High School Student" is aimed at assisting both college admissions teams with well-established high school programs and those interested in creating new programs.
