July 29,  2020 -  Fall 2020 Standardized Tests

Many sites across the USA and the globe are now closing and canceling their tests due to CoVID concerns and the inability to administer the tests given state/federal mandates for hosting large groups of people. We are going to bring our SAT fall tests in-house and they will no longer be offered to students who are not Northwood students.   The two fall in-house dates will be Sept. 23 and Oct. 14. For those of you who plan on taking the fall ACT test, we are also looking into modifying those administrations so that we can offer them to Northwood students only.  

July 27, 2020 - Virtual College Visits 

Mr. McCauley and the College Counseling Office has been busy scheduling virtual school visits for the fall. Details to follow and schools that are already scheduled include Bates, University of Vermont, Middlebury, St. Lawrence University, and more.
