15 ACCEPTED SENIORS TO MCC visited on Thursday May 12th

The students created their fall schedule (got first dibs on the classes and class times they wanted), met with financial aid advisors, received their MCC ID card, visited the academic support services center and toured the campus. They also got the opportunity (if they wanted to) to apply to be peer leaders (kind of like our Link Crew), which is a paid position! Picture is attached - they left MCC today with their MCC ID and a copy of their schedule that starts on 8/29. The only thing left to do is graduate!

June 2022 marks the last SAT and ACT Exams offered at Schroeder for the 21-22 school year

Williams College Opportunity

Windows on Williams is a selective program open to high school students in the U.S. and Puerto Rico who will be seniors in the Fall of 2022; preference is given to high-achieving students who couldn’t otherwise afford to visit Williams.

We are excited to offer two all-expenses-paid fly-in programs occurring September 22 to 24 and October 20 to 22. Regardless of when students apply, they'll have the opportunity to select which WOW program they want to attend. Currently, participation in WOW requires proof of vaccination against COVID-19, including a booster if eligible, and masks must be worn inside all campus buildings. We will notify WOW attendees should campus COVID-19 policies change.

We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted students’ high school experiences. Rest assured that we’ll be flexible and understanding in considering those disruptions as part of our individualized, student-centered application review process.

Questions? Please email WOW​@williams​.edu
