In Pursuit of Flourishing Life | Is College the Key?
February 21, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
As colleges become ever more competitive, the admissions process can generate an enormous amount of pressure and anxiety. In the midst of these pressures, the initially motivating desire to pursue a college education – a flourishing life – can be subverted.
Join Dr. Matthew Croasmun, Grace Farms Foundation’s Faith Initiative Director and Lecturer of Humanities at Yale University; Dr. Karen E. Eshoo, Head of School at King School; and Dr. Frank Bartolomeo, Director of Adolescent Services at Silver Hill, for a discussion about how the college prep and application processes can reveal and shape both parents’ and students’ visions of flourishing life.
