Junior Class College Prep Begins

Dear Parents of Putney Juniors,

I hope you are having a great holiday season! Shortly after we return from winter break, the junior class will begin the college preparation and application process at Putney. In mid-January, juniors will begin meeting with their assigned college counselor twice weekly–for group seminars and one-to-two-student conferences–which will continue through the fall of their senior year. In these meetings, they will review their transcript with their counselor; learn how to use our main college readiness platform, Naviance; research colleges; discuss PSAT scores and plan for standardized tests; and address other areas of the college application process in a personalized manner. We highly recommend that students use the March break as an opportunity to visit some of the colleges on their developing College List if family schedules permit.

Standardized testing is also a subject to consider as the busiest testing dates approach. Most colleges are test-optional these days, and many are even test-free, but some colleges still require standardized test scores as part of the application process. To ensure that Putney students have the option of testing, we will offer transportation to Brattleboro Union High School on the following test dates:

ACT Test Date – April 13, 2024
Registration Deadline – March 8, 2024
Late Registration – March 22, 2024

SAT Test Date – May 4, 2024
Registration Deadline – April 19, 2024
Late Registration – April 23, 2024

SAT Test Date – June 1, 2024
Registration Deadline – May 17, 2024
Late Registration – May 21, 2024

When registering for the ACT or SAT online, please make sure to select Brattleboro Union High School as the testing center.

We hope you have a wonderful and relaxing holiday season! We are excited to begin working with the class of 2025 as they navigate this important part of their educational journey!
