Registration and Housing are Now Open for Critical Components 2013!
What is Critical Components?
Critical Components is an intimate, one-of-a-kind professional development experience set to embark on its third year of instruction. Programmatically, its primary focus is to address the most disruptive issues in the college application process. However, the factor that sets Critical Components apart from other events is the manner in which the educational sessions are designed.
Critical Components takes a conventional idea and deliberately examines it from alternate angles. For instance, instead of discussing financial aid, it emphasizes the importance of financial literacy. In lieu of looking at the pitfalls of standardized testing, it focuses on the increased role of non-cognitive variables in college admission. Critical Components wrestles with weighty issues long before they seep into mainstream rhetoric—supplying professionals with tangible solutions to make an immediate impact on their school, practice, and/or community.
Critical Components will take place at the Marriott Downtown Waterfront in Portland, OR from May 28-31. The first day of the conference is reserved for a keynote address/welcome reception. Educational sessions will be held on May 29 and 30, and optional college tours will depart on the morning of May 31

“Hands down, this was the best conference I have ever attended as a high school counselor.”
- Rebecca Rossen, Seaholm High School (MI)
