SOLEBURY SCHOOL
Class Guide for Bucks County, Montgomery County, Southern Lehigh Valley, Hunterdon County

Thank you to Solebury School for these great tips:
HOW TO GET YOUR CHILD READY FOR COLLEGE
1. Emphasize and foster time management skills in your child - and remember that your child's teacher can be an effective partner.
2. Remember the Arts - Colleges look to recruit well-rounded students. Plus, studies show that taking art courses improves academic performance.
3. Encourage your child to speak up in class - Colleges are looking for future leaders with the confidence to speak their minds, and more and more colleges are focusing on seminar-style classes. Participation can make a difference.

Solebury School, a small private day and boarding school located in New Hope, offers a strong college preparatory curriculum, with a vibrant arts community, athletic program and many opportunities for student leadership. Don't miss the annual OPEN HOUSE on Sunday, October 19, 2014 from 1 to 4 p.m. and learn how Solebury School can ready your child for college and for life.
