American Heritage Schools College Tours

Why are College Tours important?

Whether you are just beginning your college search as a sophomore or analyzing admissions offers as a senior, college tours can help.  A college tour is a scheduled time when prospective students and/or family members visit to get a better sense of whether that college is right for them. 

  • Tours are reserved on-line and usually consist of an information session led by the admissions office, followed by a walking tour led by a student guide.
