College Case Study Program


Salesianum hosts, in conjunction with Padua Academy, Ursuline Academy, Archmere Academy and other DAIS schools a College Case Study Program held annually in the spring.

The Case Study program involves admission representatives from universities around the country meeting with small groups of students and parents.  In these groups, individuals act as a “mock” Admissions Committee, accepting, wait-listing and denying students to a fictional university.  This is accomplished by reviewing academic information, letters of recommendation, extra-curriculars, and essays.  The program is concluded with a brief college fair for students to learn about the universities in attendance.
