College Counseling

Our Director of College Counseling and his associate assist students in achieving their goals to attend the colleges and universities of their choice, consistent with their needs and abilities.  The college search process begins in the spring of the students' sophomore year when they meet with the Director once a week for 10 weeks in small classroom settings to explore their occupational interests.

In the winter of their junior year, students begin the search for postsecondary institutions during  Junior Seminar, a class that meets once a week thoughout the winter trimester. Students then develop a list of colleges and universities that they will investigate over the summer.  When students return in the fall, they will once again meet with the director in Senior Seminar, a class that meets once a week throughout the fall.  During this time, seniors will complete the Common Application, polish their essays, and finalize their college list.

In the fall, admissions representatives from nearly 100 colleges and universities visit our campus to speak and meet with prospective students.  Seniors and postgraduates work with the College Counseling staff to complete their applications which are mailed, in their entirety, under one cover, from our office to the colleges.
