The college counseling program helps students learn about college options and guides them through the application process. Our goal is to help each graduate matriculate at a college or university best suited for his talents and interests.
Freshmen and sophomores are introduced to various topics that help them consider their academic, athletic, and co-curricular strengths and interests, as well as long-term career possibilities.
Juniors prepare for and take the SAT and ACT, complete career interest inventories, attend college fairs, visit campuses, write essays, investigate academic options, and formalize their lists of college choices.
Seniors complete and submit their applications, ask teachers to write letters of recommendation, and continue working with the college counselor to ensure that every application detail has been completed. Ideally, they will be accepted to a number of colleges, leaving them to make their final enrollment decision.
Parents participate throughout the process. The Director of College Counseling, the Head of School, and other faculty leaders are readily available for advice, recommendations, and support.
We also help guide graduates who choose to enter the workforce or enlist in the armed services rather than pursue higher education.
Resources for Parents:
Family Resources – Information from The Common Application about the college process ranging from checklists to understanding financial aid letters.
This is an ID-generation site necessary to complete the FAFSA; students and parents need separate FSA IDs to sign the FAFSA form.
Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency: a resource to help Pennsylvania residents fund a college education.
