All right, this isn't actually about getting into Bennington College. I'm a sophomore in high school and I'd LOVE to go to Bennington. But I want to "test the waters" first. I've read a bit about their July program for students in high school, but can't find anything about it on the official website. Is that still a thing? If not, how do you suggest I prepare myself for going to college far away from home? thanks so much! — Asked by Anonymous

Unfortunately, the July Program ended a number of years ago. Bennington no longer has any sort of Pre-College programs—the closest thing being the Young Writers Competition

So, sorry about that.

As for leaving home, I wouldn’t worry too much about that. Coming to Vermont from New Mexico, I think I speak for most people when I say that by the time you graduate high school, you’re just ready. You’re probably gonna want to leave. Maybe (hopefully) it’s not an “Oh man I hate this place get me outta here!” kind of thing, but in more of a Next Chapter Of Your Life (hehehehehe) way. 

~you’ll be fine~
