Determining the Right "Fit"
Determining the right "fit" requires introspection on the part of the student, as well as accurate self-assessment. While this has the potential to be overwhelming, the activities and discussions that the secondary school placement process affords each family, and in particular, each student, are designed to be insightful and minimally stressful. Upland facilitates the distribution, collection and mailing of teacher recommendations, keeps track of deadlines, helps students coordinate school visits, prepares students for interviews and SSAT, and counsels the student and his or her family through every step of the process. As a result, the process is an exciting and empowering time of self-discovery and accomplishment.
