Students who have earned a 28 ACT/1250-1280 SAT and either a cumulative 3.75 G.P.A. or who are in the top 5% of their class are invited to attend Honors Receptions from 7-8:30 pm in the Roe Center.
Honors Receptions are intended to give high academic-achieving high school seniors an opportunity to learn about the rich honors experiences at Central.

Wondering what to wear?
We recommend professional/business attire. For women, slacks or skirts; for men, a shirt and tie or a nice sweater are recommended. Please bring your coats with you as you will walk across campus for the interview/essay/logic portion of the day.
We want to get to know you better, and for you to get to know us, too. Be prepared to talk about your background, your academic and extracurricular/community interests, and your interest in Central College. A faculty member and current student will ask you questions. The interview takes 10-15 minutes.
You will be asked to respond to a question related to Central College. The essay gives you a chance to be creative and express your ideas regarding Central's hallmark programs and how you might contribute to the Central community. No writing ahead of time is required; however, we strongly recommend that you review information about Central's hallmark programs prior to your Scholar Day date. You will have 40 minutes to complete the essay.
