Next Steps Program

Next Steps is the feature opportunity of the college advising program at SMS where students can experience colleges and the application process up close and personal during our Minimester. Travel with your peers to tour college campuses in the Mid-Atlantic area and learn about the characteristics and opportunities of a variety of colleges. Each year the trip includes a different set of colleges on the visit list. 

During Minimester 2020, March 2-6, the College Counseling Next Steps Program will travel to colleges in Washington, DC, Delaware, Philadelphia, and Maryland. Students will leave St. Margaret’s on Monday morning and spend the next 4 days visiting 7-8 college campuses. Spend time learning from professionals in admissions offices and receive advice on college essays, preparing your resume, and how to have a memorable interview. Have fun exploring all of your opportunities as you take your Next Steps!
