Seminars– Update

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 the 2 admissions seminars planned for this spring have been cancelled by Cheshire Adult Education. This is for the safety of everyone who planned to attend and, as such, we support this decision.

Fortunately, we are still up and running as usual so please reach out with any questions you may have. Keep your eyes open for seminars in the upcoming fall semester as well. Stay well!

Meriden Youth Services & CAC

Thank you very much to the Meriden Youth Services. The organization and their members provided CAC with a warm welcome this past May when we helped teach high school students all about applying to college. We sure covered a lot of material and everyone there received a free CAC water bottle! The group of young men and women was very attentive and had some great experiences to share! Thank you again!

Thank you Meriden Public Library

We wanted to send a big thank you to the Meriden Public Library for inviting us into their library to present a seminar on the college admissions process. The seminar was a big success and the audience members had some great questions!
Any additional libraries, organizations, etc. please feel free to contact us (see “Contact Page”). We would love the opportunity to educate your patrons on the college admissions process and related academic topics!
