Colloquium

July 15-18, 2019
Macalester College
Mind, Brain, and Education and the College Counselor

Registration is now closed.  To join the wait list in case a space becomes available, click here
Registration fee is $500 including on-campus housing (commuter fee is $450); housing is in air-conditioned single-occupancy residence hall rooms with shared bathrooms.


In this practical and interactive Colloquium, we will use a Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) approach to explore critical topics identified by attendees. Through solo and group activity, discussion, case examples, and painless role-play, participants will deepen their counseling skills and sharpen their understanding of the complexities of learning, learners, and families. Participants will be led by Daisy Pellant, Ph.D., a developmental psychologist specializing in aligning mind, brain, and education (MBE) research with independent schooling. Her current work is with The Peter Clark Center for Mind, Brain, and Education at The Breck School.

We are also offering an optional post-Colloquium visit to St. Olaf College and Carleton College, both in Northfield, MN. Transportation, breakfast, lunch, and one night of hotel is included for $175. More information can be found in the schedule, linked below. 

The tentative schedule is linked here. More information about the ACCIS Colloquium is found by clicking on the "Programs" tab in the header bar above.


New Directors Workshop

July 28-30, 2019
The Lovett School, Atlanta, GA

Registration is now closed. To join the wait list in case a space becomes available, click here
More information about the ACCIS New Directors Workshop is found by clicking on the "Programs" tab in the header bar above.
Registration fee is $375 and attendees will reserve and pay separately for a hotel room within a group block at the Hotel Indigo-Vinings ($159/night).

The New Directors Workshop is an intentional gathering to assist our organization’s directors of college counseling (or equivalent titles) who will start the next academic year with 0-3 years of experience in that role. This program is geared toward those with prior college counseling experience in schools; for directors brand new to college counseling in independent schools, the New Counselor Workshop may be the preferred choice, but is not a prerequisite for this program. The schedule from 2017 (this is an every-other-year program) can be found here for general guidance on topics and timing.
