The college counseling program begins Freshman Year and is woven into our advisory program. We prepare students to personally live out the mission, equipping them to think deeply, carefully, and well.

Our counseling program ensures that students engage in academic and cocurricular pursuits that best prepare them for their college and career choices.


Unique Features

The student to counselor ratio will be no more than 120:1 in our first year Even at full capacity, this ratio will be half of local and state averages. Students will receive highly personalized attention that will help guide their academic and cocurricular pursuits. This will ultimately also translate to individualized letters of recommendation that will allow our students to stand out.

Proactive approach to engage with students and their families

The Counselor will meet regularly with each student and family throughout their high school experience. Students will be given the opportunity to imagine their future selves, mapping out possible opportunities in college, career, and beyond.

College visits and visits from admissions representatives bring the college experience to students

There are thousands of options upon graduation, and our College Counselor will help navigate students through these options while providing them with the information they need to make an informed decision.

College workshops educate our community on the college experience, financial aid, and scholarships

We will provide frequent counselor led workshops keeping students and families educated of the college process and timelines, including PSAT testing, resume building, SAT/ACT prep, as well as essay workshops, and editing.
