A Message From Jessup Admissions

Remember when you first applied to Jessup? Most of you were assigned a counselor that helped guide you through the admissions process. Another facet of our job is traveling to high schools all over California, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington and telling students about the phenomenal programs and opportunities Jessup has to offer. Do you live in one of those areas? Would like to help reach out to students in your area that you think would be a great fit for Jessup? If so, please contact Christina Hayes, Admissions Counselor, at chayes@jessup.edu. She would love to connect with you and let you know more about the Jessup Alumni Ambassador project.
