Lexington Christian Academy Students Meet With Top College Representatives

It’s different than your typical college fair in all the right ways—more personal, more informative, more fun.

Earlier this school year, the College Advising Department at Lexington Christian Academy (Lexington, MA) hosted its second annual College Night 2017. The event provided juniors and seniors from LCA, other area schools, and the home school community with the opportunity to interact with admissions representatives from an impressive cross-section of some of the finest colleges and universities in New England and beyond. In total, 20 schools participated in the evening including Boston College, Babson College, Brandeis University, Colorado College, the College of the Holy Cross, Connecticut College, Emerson College, Fairfield University, Liberty University, New York University, Northeastern University, Pennsylvania State University, Quinnipiac University, Tufts University, UMASS-Amherst, UMASS-Lowell, the University of Connecticut, the University of New Hampshire, Villanova University, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

Traditionally, college fairs offered by high schools are impersonal events where students walk up and down rows of tables in a crowded gymnasium stopping just long enough to pick up some promotional material and maybe exchange a brief greeting with an overwhelmed admissions representative. College Night at Lexington Christian Academy, however, was a very different experience. Featuring a panel discussion, small group presentations, and question and answer sessions, the event was highly interactive and informative. Moreover, it provided students with a unique opportunity to explore, learn and connect in a meaningful way with admissions representatives who, in many cases, read their applications.

“College Night was great,” said Rob Scaro, LCA’s Director of College Advising. “After the success we had last year, we were thrilled to be able to make the event even bigger and more engaging for our students and their families this year.”

LCA parent Carolyn Stevens was particularly impressed with the format of College Night. “It’s different than your typical college fair in all the right ways—more personal, more informative, more fun. We really liked it!”
