For Better or Worse: Executing Sibling Admission Policies - Presentation

For Better or Worse: Executing Sibling Admission Policies - Presentation

With Sherryn Hay, Director of Admission, Trinity Preparatory School (FL) & Katie Seymour, Assistant Director of Admission, Trinity Preparatory School (FL)

Schools with sibling policies face special challenges when reviewing sibling applicants. While all admission professionals would agree that we are delighted to have sibling applicants, we recognize the unique complications that arise in assessing siblings who may or may not fit the mission of the school. This workshop uses cooperative learning and case studies to tease out the issues underlying sibling policies. We will explore the complicated issues that may arise when an admission committee feels it cannot admit a sibling of a current student, despite a sibling friendly policy, and how to communicate that decision.
