JUNIOR PARENTS: It’s Time to Prepare for a College Search!

March 30, 2015

webinarIf you are a parent of a high school junior, you have most likely already begun helping your student with his or her college search, and you may also already be feeling a bit overwhelmed with the process!

Navigating through the maze of higher education can be a daunting experience for parents. Where do I begin? How do I find the best college for my student? What factors should I consider? And, how will we pay for this new adventure?

Cedarville University is offering a FREE webinar to answer these and other questions on Monday, April 6, 2015, at 8 p.m. EDT. Registration is now open!

The webinar is led by Roscoe Smith, Associate Vice President for University Admissions at Cedarville, who has 25 years of enrollment experience ... not to mention he's a dad with two college students! You'll be able to ask questions throughout the presentation and gain insights to apply to your specific situation ... all from the comfort of your own home and personal computer.

Register now to be a part of this FREE, informative webinar. And, share this information with friends who are about to embark on this college search process with a son or daughter! All are welcome to attend; the material will be relevant no matter what colleges a parent or student is considering.

Summer Academic Camps Explore Career Interests (and Other Great Opportunities)

March 24, 2015

Summer Camps

Make this summer one your students will never forget by sending them to a Cedarville academic or sports camp ... or have them get a head start on college by taking a college course on campus or online from home!

Cedarville Academic Camps give students the opportunity to spend a week at Cedarville exploring the world of art and design, business, criminal justice, engineering, geology, journalism, medicine, music, psychology, theatre, worship ministry, or writing! Your students will accomplish much more than career exploration. Camp faculty will challenge them to make their career their calling. They will be challenged to consider how their gifts, skills, and interests can make a difference in this world for Christ. We've packed the schedule with fun activities, too, so students return home with new friends and great memories! 

College Now Summer Studies is Cedarville's residential college study option for rising high school juniors and seniors. Students experience campus life and earn three hours of college credit. Choosing from a class in Spiritual Formation or Politics and American Culture, your student will study with a top Cedarville University professor in a small-class setting while enjoying campus life for two weeks (June 13–27).

Online course options and sports camps are other great summer possibilities at Cedarville! Learn more about all of these options at

Deadlines for the summer programs are coming quickly! Find out more about how your student can apply and register to become a part of the Cedarville University summer experience today!
