The Catholic University of America & Villanova University

A Day Out & About in DC

Tuesday, November 4 – Wednesday November 5, 2024




Did you know that visiting a college is termed “demonstrated interest” by schools and is one of the admissions criteria used to determine an applicant’s acceptance? In fact, “demonstrated interest” is one piece of the admissions puzzle that can give a student up to a 40% chance of being admitted over other applicants.


The college admissions process is a tricky one to navigate. Give yourself the best opportunity to succeed by joining us on this two-day trip to DC & Pennsylvania for visits to The Catholic University of America & Villanova University.


In addition to this incredible experience, A-1 Tours offers an EXCLUSIVE partnership with University Seekers. University Seekers is a college preparatory service led by a local college admissions expert. With their guidance, they market your personal profile to your dream schools. They stay in touch with the admissions departments to ensure your application is highlighted, giving you a leg up on the competition.
