Centre is also hosting Junior Day on Feb. 14 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. for high school juniors interested in attending the college. Sessions about Centre, the college search process, a liberal arts education and financial aid are available for juniors and their parents. Students and their families will also have an opportunity to tour campus. For more information on Junior Day, call (800) 423-6236 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

"We moved our first junior open house to February because it's a very good program for students who are just beginning their college search," said Bob Nesmith, associate director of admission at Centre. "The sessions are not merely Centre specific, but address broader issues of choosing and applying to colleges."
Financial aid applications are due Feb. 15. See http://www.centre.edu/web/admission/financial/ for more information. More than 80 percent of Centre students receive financial assistance, nearly 60 percent receive need-based financial aid and more than half receive merit-based scholarships.
Centre College is rated a top-50 national liberal arts institution by U.S. News & World Report, and the College is the most affordable of that group.
