Charlotte Regionals of Western North Carolina (CROWN) is a group of college admissions representatives from the Charlotte metro area.  They are offering a number of free college application process information sessions for high school students in Mecklenburg County who are heading into their Senior year and have questions about how to apply for college! 

Davidson College invites rising juniors and seniors to their Summer Admission Intensives workshop series. These are designed to help support students as they begin their college search and admission process.  The workshops will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from July 9 through August 1.  All sessions are free, virtual, and students can attend as many as they like. Participants do not have to apply to or attend Davidson College to benefit from these workshops.
