The Process of Discernment: Unveiling Aptitude and Character

August 6, 2019

At The Bishop’s School, the relational process with each candidate and his/her family begins when they tour campus, interface with more than one admission officer, and have multiple experiences before culminating in a family interview. The interview is carefully curated to assess the skills, abilities, and character of an applicant based on a mission-appropriate rubric. In this presentation, we guide you through the principles of design for a relational process relevant to your institution. As directors of first impression, learn how to delve into the philosophy of your process, giving you a broader and deeper knowledge base and elevating the value of your relationships. The standards of the model are a guidepost for professionalism, assessment, and integrity of process. Admission teams will be in a position to discern the quality of applicant and the softer skills that align with institutional standards, resulting in a validation of decision making.
