  • Committed to Our Students



The College Counseling Office is committed to working with our students beginning in their freshman year to guide and encourage them as they navigate the college admissions process.  We work collaboratively alongside each student to ensure that he/she meets important deadlines, researches a wide array of colleges, registers for tests, and successfully completes applications.  We are dedicated to ensuring that our students are well-prepared as they tackle any challenges they may face while working to achieve their goals in high school, while also working with them to develop a groundwork for success in their higher education aspirations. 
 
Meetings will be held with parents regularly throughout the four-year college preparatory and application process.  Parents will also be kept abreast of information concerning financial aid and graduation requirements.

  • Freshman Year

    The introduction to the college application process begins freshman year by encouraging students and their parents to log onto Naviance, a robust college search engine.  One key tool that Naviance offers is the Learning Style Inventory (LSI), an online assessment which diagnoses students’ unique learning styles based on an analysis of their personal preferences in 22 different areas. A personally tailored report identifies each student’s unique environmental, emotional, sociological, and physical preferences. This information can then be used to personalize the college search process based on each student’s strengths.  Early on in the college application process we also work on resume building with a focus on meaningful extra-curricular activities.
  • Sophomore Year

    During students' sophomore year, we work with students to delve deeper into the vast features of Naviance with a special focus on the Needs Assessment, PLAN test interpretation, and the Personality Type Survey. We also encourage students to consider taking a college summer course and to visit one or two schools.  This is done so that the student can start to formulate an idea of what their ideal college would be like.
  • Junior Year

    During students' junior year, we begin to formulate a plan for higher education with a focus on intensive college research.  A Career Interest Inventory test is also administered.   Periodic small group workshops covering several topics related to the college application process, including essay writing, college visits, EA, ED I, ED II, SAT’s, ACT, SAT Subject Tests, and important deadlines, are offered for juniors and seniors. College visits are highly encouraged.
  • Senior Year

    In students' senior year, we meet with students to discuss, review, and enhance essays and resumes, as well as finalize college choices and submit applications.
