College Visits and Virtual College Tours
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then seeing a college campus should play a part in the process of selecting a college. Students should take advantage of family travel opportunities to visit colleges of potential interest. By contacting the Office of Admissions before arriving on campus, it is often possible to arrange for a campus tour and possible meeting with admissions counselors to have any questions about college life addressed. If a family is unable to actually visit a particular campus because of distance or timing, it is possible to take a "virtual" campus visit by linking with the web site below. Campus Tours provides an excellent window into the campus of your choice.
It is the policy of Cumberland Christian School to allow juniors and seniors to visit a college campus during the regular school year. Students are limited to two visits each year. A written request should be submitted to the high school office in advance of the absence and a dated letter from the college must be provided to the high school office following the visit. The letter from the college should indicate the fact that the student did visit the college on the particular date.
