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 eleven years, Casady has had the incredible opportunity to bring in college admission experts from all over the country to Casady School to speak to our students and share their expertise with our community.
“One of the best things we can do as admissions officers is connect with students early in the process. Junior year events like the Dean’s Fly-In program are amazing ways to help students and parents understand the often confusing admissions process so they can make informed decisions about their own college search. Casady School’s families are smart, engaged, and enthusiastic and I know that through this event, and other programming offered by the advising staff, they will be exceedingly well prepared when making the jump to college.”

"The Casady School Dean's Fly-in was the perfect balance of time in OKC and professional networking- including time to connect with schools, community partners, and teaching faculty, as well as other college admissions deans. As a testament to their thirst for knowledge, Casady School's, college counseling office, students and families asked thoughtful questions and were engaged throughout my time on campus. I left the program feeling excited, energized and most importantly- better informed as a college admission's dean."
