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.

Our reception has traditionally been a wonderful way to connect with admission representatives from National CCAA member institutions, as well as other secondary, independent, and community-based counselors.

Thank you to all who attended the 2023 Catholic Colleges Reception at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery in Baltimore. We loved seeing so many of you and hope to see you again at a future reception!  Please stay tuned for more details about the 2024 Catholic Colleges Reception in Los Angeles!

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)
