College Counseling

Caron advises student-athletes, RE families

Ransom Everglades Coordinator of Student-Athlete College Recruitment Roger Caron offered a frank and information-packed primer to RE student-athletes and their parents on the college athletic recruiting landscape. Caron shared vital insights into a process that has changed greatly over the last two decades, and tailored his remarks to student-athletes at every stage of the process, beginning with freshman year.
During his presentation at the Lewis Family Auditorium Dec. 10, Caron outlined the national recruiting landscape from Division I to Division III. He urged students to be aggressive in the recruiting process by reaching out directly to coaches, visiting schools, attending meaningful camps or clinics throughout their high school careers, and, most importantly, taking rigorous courses and performing well

He explained the Ivy League Academic Index, the NCAA Eligibility Center, and urged students and parents to take advantage of the myriad tools in the Resources section of myCOMPASS, including the Ransom Everglades School Recruiting Guide. He took questions at the conclusion of his remarks.

The next college counseling opportunity for RE families is the College Admission Symposium for the Class of 2021 on Jan. 11. RE's college counseling office will kick off the college process for juniors and junior parents at this important event, during which juniors will be assigned individual college counselors and college representatives will present on various topics in small groups. Class of 2021 families should register here. The event symposium opens with a continental breakfast at 7:30 a.m.
