Live the fourth.
Devon will host a Career Day for our high school students on November 30th.
To date, twenty-four alumni have volunteered to come back to Devon to talk with students about their varied careers in Medicine, Law, Business, Science, Education, and Finance among other fields. Students will have the opportunity to choose 3 presentations to attend, one each during 6th, 7th and 8th periods. In each presentation, an alumnus will share his career experiences and insights and answer questions from the students.

SAT-ACT Diagnostic Test for Juniors
Saturday, November 3, 2018
8:15 - 12:30 pm

Standardized tests are a part of the admissions application process.  Students will begin to take the SAT or ACT in their junior year.  Since most colleges will super-score (take the highest section scores on the SAT or highest composite on the ACT), it is to your advantage to take a standardized test more than once.
 
Many of you are wondering “Which test should he take?”   To help answer that question, we are bringing back our SAT-ACT Diagnostic Test.   It will take place at Devon Prep on Saturday, November 3, 2018, from 8:15 – 12:30 pm.  The SAT-ACT Diagnostic Test is a practice, hybrid test of the SAT and the ACT.  Students and parents will have the opportunity to get his results on both tests and then decide which test he will continue with throughout junior/senior years. Results will be distributed at a Debrief meeting on Tuesday, November 13 at 7:00 pm.


For more information or a registration form, please contact Mrs. Eshleman at eeshleman@devonprep.com or 610-688-7337 x172.

Devon families will have from November 1st until January 16th to submit their Financial Aid Application for the 2019-2020 school year.  In order to receive financial aid, you have to re-apply every year.

All submissions must be made through sss.nais.org.  

DO NOT apply for Financial Aid through FACTS.  All aid applications MUST go through sss.nais.org.
