Catholic Colleges Reception at NACAC

The National CCAA hosts the Catholic Colleges Reception, a memorable event alongside the annual NACAC conference. The casual event brings together nearly 1,000 secondary school and independent counselors and admission representatives from National CCAA member institutions for networking and conversation. Each year boasts remarkable entertainment, food and drinks, and an unforgettable evening.

The 2021 Catholic Colleges Reception did not taking place this year during the NACAC Conference in Seattle. We hope to connect virtually with you via upcoming virtual Counselor Town Hall sessions and virtual college fairs and events, starting up again in fall 2021. We also hope you will subscribe to the CCAA Counselor Corner (CCC) an e-newsletter for high school, independent, community-based, and two-year college counselors.

What attendees are saying about the Catholic Colleges Reception

“It is the one social at NACAC I make sure to attend every year. It is a great opportunity to foster relationships with NCCAA members.”

– Nicholle Wyatt, Director of College Advising, High Tech High (CA)

“The Catholic Colleges Reception is one of my favorite events at NACAC! I love the opportunity to catch up with colleagues from Catholic colleges around the U.S., hear a great band, and in [past] years, see the Stanley Cup! I register as soon as it opens to be sure I get a ticket. This is the NACAC event to attend.”

– Ann Kjorstad, College and Career Counselor, Academy of the Holy Angels (MN)
