Critical Components: Mastering the College Admission Process

May 23 – 26, 2016
Pittsburgh, PA


Audience: Secondary school counselors, independent educational consultants, community based organizations, graduate students and pre-service counselors.
Thank you to all those who attended the 2016 program! Critical Components has been providing important content for school counselors and others who work with students on the transition from high school to college for the past six years. We have decided to take a break for 2017 in order to review evaluate and improve the program with the anticipation that we will relaunch in 2018.

Check back in the coming months for updates on the date and location for 2018.
