A round table discussion entitled "Increase College Acceptances and Maximize Financial Packages" will be held on April 3 from 6-8 pm in the Mount Saint Joseph Academy library. The event is free and open to all interested area middle school and high school families. Panelists will include: Elizabeth Borge, Senior Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admission, Boston College; Ralph Musella, President, VT College Counseling; and Paolo Zancanaro, Principal, Mount Saint Joseph Academy. The discussion and question and answer session, moderated by John Valente (MSJ, ’84), will address tips in preparing college applications, how to maximize financial aid packages, and why students need to be aware of college admissions issues starting as early as their freshman year in high school. One hundred percent of MSJ’s class of 2011 was admitted to four-year colleges, and the class received $548,900 in college scholarships. MSJ is located at 127 Convent Ave., Rutland, VT.
