The college search. Although a seemingly simple phrase, these three words have the power to create a tornado of emotions for many families of high school students. The Annette Eskind Institute of Learning at Currey Ingram Academy is hosting a free “Parent’s Guide to the College Process” for public and independent school parents of high school, college-bound students from 8-9 a.m. on Monday, August 28 at the school, 6544 Murray Lane, Brentwood.
Tami Perkins, M.Ed, director of College Counseling at Currey Ingram Academy, will be leading the session. Dr. Perkins spent nine years in college admissions before moving to college counseling at independent schools. She is active in a number of college admission associations and has chaired the National College Fair held in Nashville, for the last four years. Dr. Perkins takes great pride in developing strong relationships with college admission professionals to help provide the most up-to-date resources for students and their parents as they prepare for their college journey. (Note to Currey Ingram Parents: You are welcome to attend this session, but know Ms. Perkins will be reaching out to Currey Ingram upper school families separately.)
