By now you are probably in the final stages of planning for the upcoming school year which could be all virtual or a hybrid model. Either way, e-leaning will be the new norm that is complemented with Cirkled In as an e-Portfolio. Cirkled In is like "LinkedIn for students". We would love to discuss how award-winning Cirkled In helps students be college and career ready.
You have probably followed the news of the University of California system, followed by many universities including the University of Washington who have moved away from the SAT/ACT altogether and will be evaluating candidates holistically. Cirkled In helps your student compile all their activities, highlight themselves in the best possible way to colleges and recruiters, and increase their success rate. Award-winning Cirkled In is becoming the de-facto platform for students and college recruiters alike.
Your high school student can also research colleges, think about essay topics, and even take virtual tours to “visit” these colleges, all within Cirkled In. For more information, go to https://www.cirkledin.com/
Your students are invited to join us for a new College Search Series that will focus on important topics to consider as they explore their college options. These virtual events will touch on everything from college visits to the application process and financial aid.
The college search process will likely be very unique for all of us this year. We encourage students to register for as many sessions as they would like. It is our hope that this College Search Series will help your students feel prepared as they begin the exciting journey of finding their college home.
Students may register for any of the events by visiting our Virtual Visit Events page at https://www.bradley.edu/virtual-programs.

A Unique Career Opportunity for Students
My name is Ashley Smith, and I am the Program Director of a new dental assisting school operated by the Dallas County Dental Society (DCDS). Attached to DCDS headquarters in North Dallas, our school is unique in that it is supported by our local membership of over 1300 American Dental Association dentists.
DCDS Dental Assisting School’s main focus is to provide quality training to individuals who want to work in dentistry, but are concerned with the often exorbitant cost of training programs. Our course is 12 weeks long and tuition is $4,800.00; which includes books, supplies, scrubs, CPR certification and RDA registration with the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners.
We work with our network of dentists to determine exactly what they need from their dental team and, with approval from the Texas Workforce Commission, tailor our curriculum to meet their needs. Our true advantage is that we have general and specialty dentist members of our society who will serve as instructors with our students rotating through their offices as externs; our students are invited to their externships, rather than having to find their own. Students at the DCDS Dental Assisting School learn to maximize skills to become valued and contributing members of the dental team.
We also invite you and your students to tour our new facilities so you can discover how DCDS Dental Assisting School prepares students to become world-class dental assistants.
Career Institute of America
Our Classes for Air condition, Heating & Refrigeration already started and another group will start within 2 weeks. Mostly students from different schools are going to be graduating in May/June 2019 so we have Part-time and full time schedules to accommodate all the students who wish to enroll in program.
We do have financial Aid for qualified students. We also help our students to place them in different organizations after graduation as a Technician.
