A Busy Bell in College Counseling

It’s that time of year when the college application process is fast and furious in North Bridgton. With each passing week, more major college deadlines head into the rearview, and college counselors Mrs. Jamie Izaryk and Ms. Kayleigh Lepage have been busy working with each Bridgton student to ensure that their process is moving in a positive direction.

Mrs. Izaryk, Director of College Counseling, reports that over 600 applications have been filed by the Class of 2021. Our Wolverines have applied to over 230 unique colleges and universities across the United States. As spring approaches, a number of students are beginning to hear decisions from their schools of choice.

As always, the College Counseling Office invites students to ring their office victory bell to celebrate acceptances and school commitments, a fun tradition that allows students a moment to “pause for applause.”

Izaryk notes that, while still early in the acceptance season, she has seen quite a bit of geographic diversity in student acceptances. Some recent school acceptances include:

Grinnell College

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Clarkson University

Trinity College

Marist College

University of Colorado, Boulder

Wittenberg University

Ohio Wesleyan University

The University of Alabama

University of Mississippi
