“A person’s mind, stretched by new ideas and unseen academic potential, may never return to its original dimensions.”
So says college advisor Dr. Pierre Michel, and that’s one reason why he will be speaking at “College Readiness: Redefining College Preparation for Students With Learning Differences” from 7-8 p.m. Jan. 21. Hosted by The American Academy, the live online event is part of its speaker series, Experts in Learning Differences, presented by the American Heritage School program for students with mild learning differences.
Michel, a guidance counselor at The American Academy, will be joined at the event by Chris Doyle, director of undergraduate admission at Marist College. The college experts will offer valuable tips on how students with learning differences can navigate the college preparation process and find the best college fit, as well as gain the confidence needed to get accepted to and flourish academically at the college of their choice.
The American Academy speaker series strives to educate families about relevant topics that relate to mild learning differences, providing families with a safe space to ask questions and strengthen their knowledge to ensure the success of their children.
Registration for the event is at ah-americanacademy.com/speaker-series. Limited spots are available.
