CollegeWeekLive Launches High School Connect

Revolutionary New Service Will Allow High Schools and Colleges to Schedule Live Online Admissions Meetings for Students and Parents

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - October 06, 2014) - CollegeWeekLive, the leading website where students and colleges connect live online, today announced CollegeWeekLive High School Connect, an easy-to-use online meeting tool tailored specifically to the college admissions process. High School Connect provides high school counselors with an intuitive online platform for scheduling live video meetings for their students and their parents, directly with college admissions officers. The product also allows colleges to identify, schedule, and conduct live online events with high schools of their choice across the globe.

With High School Connect, high schools have more direct contact with college admissions offices than ever before and the ability to expose students to a wide variety of colleges, regardless of distance. High School Connect also provides high schools with greater scheduling and administrative control over college visits that may typically take place at their school. "With High School Connect, my students are able to meet and chat online with admissions representatives from a much broader range of colleges and universities than ever before," shared Terry Henry, a college and career counselor at Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis.

High School Connect also enables college admission offices to increase their recruiting reach to more students than ever before, since travel costs for college representatives are eliminated. College admissions offices can improve their efficiency and cost effectiveness as a result. "High School Connect gives us a way to connect with students at our feeder schools as well as high schools we do not visit in person," said Jeff Fuller, Director of Student Recruitment at the University of Houston. Colleges can use High School Connect at every stage of the admissions process, from staging information sessions to conducting admissions interviews to hosting accepted student days for international students.

"Using the web for research and live interactions, including the college search process, is second nature for teens," said Robert Rosenbloom, President and CEO of CollegeWeekLive. "Now high schools can leverage High School Connect so their students can not only research colleges, but connect with them live online."
