EDISON, NJ -- The College Counseling Office at The Wardlaw + Hartridge School in Edison hosted two programs recently to assist Upper School students and parents with the admission process.

On Oct. 12, the Jump Start to College Program for freshmen, new sophomores and their parents provided an early glimpse of the college process. Attendees learned about what colleges are looking for in a successful candidate and what students and parents can do now. Ashley LaFrance, Program Manager from Kaplan Test Prep, led the presentation.

On Oct. 5, Wil Casaine, Executive Director of Financial Aid at The College of New Jersey, covered the college financial aid process from A to Z and addressed many questions, including: How will you pay for college? What’s the difference between FAFSA and the CSS Profile? Are grants and scholarships the same thing?
