College Counseling

College counseling is an important aspect of life at Phelps.  Freshmen and sophomores learn quickly that their academic, athletic, and co-curricular endeavors will become their personal profiles for college applications.  Juniors prepare for and take the SAT and ACT.  They complete career and interest inventories, attend college fairs, visit campuses, write essays, investigate academic options, and formalize their lists of college choices.

Seniors, of course, complete their applications and make their final decisions.  Parent participation throughout this process is welcomed and encouraged by the Director of College Counseling, along with the Head of School and other faculty leaders, all of whom are readily available for advice, recommendations, and support.  Some graduates choose to enter the workforce or enlist in the armed services rather than pursue higher education.  Still, our goal is to help each graduate earn the option of matriculating at a college or university well suited for his talents and interests.
