The college admissions process plays an important role in our high school students’ educational journey and in their individual journeys of self-discovery. From the moment students arrive as freshmen, they are immersed in a college-bound culture designed to help them identify and realize their own goals and aspirations. With the active guidance of our college counselors and academic deans, as well as the support of our faculty, one hundred percent of our graduates who desire to attend college gain entry to a college or university of their choice.
Our careful and attentive planning involves both parents and students in a collaborative process that spans their high school years and is embedded in course work and course selection. The formal college search and application process kicks off in the spring of our students’ junior year with an informational evening for parents and with weekly seminars for the students. Following individual family meetings, students then meet regularly and individually with our college counseling staff to identify programs, colleges and universities that closely match their talents, aspirations and capabilities. We continue to meet with and support our students throughout their senior year as they complete their college applications. We offer weekly college counseling seminars in the junior and senior years. We present a Spring case studies program for students, financial aid planning for parents, and welcome 80 - 100 college representatives who visit our campus to meet with students each Fall. Frequent, open communication among the students, parents, college counselors, and the colleges themselves is key to a successful admissions process.
