Nobles Parents' Newsletter January 2018

"It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" by Dean of Enrollment Management Jennifer Hines

As we move into January, we are definitely undergoing a shift in the admission office. We have spent the fall doing what we can to make sure that prospective families are aware of, and even more importantly, knowledgeable about Nobles. We’ve spent time visiting schools, attending school fairs, hosting receptions and open houses, chatting online, mailing packets of brochures, emailing countless bits of information, answering phone calls, interviewing candidates and meeting groups in activity sessions. And now, with the exception of what we will attempt between now and our application deadline, for the most part, we wait to see what arrives to us on January 15.

Of course, for those of you with kids at Nobles, I’m sure you remember the December/January period of the year in which they applied very differently.  I would imagine that “winter break” morphed into “do everything that you can to finish applications before school starts up again.” You likely found yourselves communicating with your previous schools and teachers, making sure that essays were being written and critiqued, taking the standardized tests before the deadline and finally hitting “submit” to electronically get everything to us.

Before the work of evaluating applications begins for us in the new year, I often find myself reflecting on who we are as an institution and what a tremendous gift I find it to be a part of such a wonderful community. On some level, all of us were chosen to be a part of Nobles and it is something that I don’t take for granted. Anything that puts us on a path towards greater opportunities is positive for me and I hope that you feel similarly as you reflect on your own experiences at Nobles. To that end, please encourage any families that you know that may be considering Nobles as an option to reach out to any of us on the admission team if they have any lingering questions about the school or the application process. Here’s to another January 15!
