College Counseling

Dean's Fly-In Program

Casady's Dean's Fly-In Program is a signature program of Casady's College Counseling Team, emphasizing their ability to cultivate strong and meaningful relationships with college admissions representatives from across the country. This is key to the success of Casady students finding the "best fit" so that they are successful in college and in the world around them.
Casady School offers a unique, one-of-a-kind Dean's Fly-In program to kickstart the formal college counseling program with 11th-grade students and parents. Over the past twelve years, Casady has had the incredible opportunity to bring in college admission experts from all over the country to speak to our students and share their expertise with our community.
"Casady School's Night with the Deans was an exceptional and well-executed experience that will long live in my memory bank. The opportunity to engage with senior leadership as well as other members of the faculty and staff provided us (visiting deans) with a comprehensive view of Casady that will shape our assessment of current and future applicants to our respective institutions. The excellent turnout of students and parents not only provided us with a platform to discuss our respective institutions, but also allowed for meaningful engagement about key aspects of the college application process. As a result of this program, Bucknell is taking concerted measures to strategically include Oklahoma in our recruitment plan, something we have not actively done in recent memory. Thank you for jumpstarting this new outreach initiative."
