The College Counseling Office offers an active, hands-on approach to all aspects of the college decision making and application process. We focus on multiple interactions with our students and our services are individualized.

The program begins in ninth grade, with a brief introduction to the important variables in the college process.

In tenth grade, students are taught how to use the college search program called Naviance. Early in the eleventh grade, there is an evening program for parents given by the counselors, which introduce the college decision-making process.

In February, families from tenth and eleventh grades are invited to a College Information Program given by a College Admissions Representative from a college to which our students frequently apply.

In eleventh grade, students then meet individually with their assigned counselor for a private college conference. Students are assigned to a mandatory group for college exploration and will meet four times with one of the counselors.

We have an annual visitation program from approximately ten to fifteen top college Admissions Representatives to discuss and inform all grades regarding individual colleges.

A Financial Aid Program is available in early January with an expert on financial aid.

The August before senior year begins, the counselors meet with students and families to finalize college choices and to begin discussion of the Common Application process.

A senior assembly and an informational eleventh grade meeting are held very early in the fall.

The month of September-January are devoted to the actual filing and processing of the college applications. Counselors guide senior students in an extremely personal matter and accomplish these tasks.
