College Counseling

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: creatively, critically, and with a capacity for self-growth. Our counseling program ensures that students engage in academic and co-curricular pursuits that best prepare them for their college and career choices.

Our counselor guides students through all aspects of the college admission process, from developing appropriate college lists to completing applications, writing essays, and applying for financial aid. We keep parents informed and involved in the college counseling process through written communication, class meetings, parent information sessions, and individual meetings. 

Unique Features

The student to counselor ratio is currently 70:1. Students receive highly personalized attention that will help guide their academic and cocurricular pursuits. This ultimately translates 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 through development of a Personal Learning Plan.

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

There are thousands of options upon graduation, and our 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 through Parent Academy nights. 


We prepare students to personally live out the mission, equipping them to think deeply, carefully, and well.
