College Counseling is an integral part of the educational program at WMA. We view ourselves as teachers and advisors rather than placement officers, and strive to support our students and families by providing accurate and up-to-date information and personalized guidance throughout every phase of the college search and application process.
Our program is designed to equip our students to take the leading role in their own education and to nurture self-reflection, independent thinking, resourcefulness and resilience - qualities that will serve them well in college and beyond.
"The WMA community is full of adults that are determined to see me and my peers succeed, whether that is in an academic setting or out in the community. This support is very motivating, especially for us stressed-out seniors!”
Kyle D. '20 from Illinois
"I love the community, and everyone is really welcoming. Also, it's easy to fit in and you feel at home!"
"The best thing about WMA is that you get to be your own person, because there are so many people around you who will support you no matter what you want to do.''
"What I like about WMA is the relationships you form with your teachers. They are always available to help you whether it is academically, socially or athletically. Everyone on campus has an interest in your success."
Emma C. '20 from Massachusetts
"I love being apart of a community where you are always supported to do your best."
