College Counseling

Who says the college application process has to be stressful? Not us.
We’ve developed a four-year comprehensive, counseling model that works. With our approach, students and their families have plenty of time to plan, prepare and apply. Our track record speaks for itself. Our seniors regularly receive multiple offers of admission to nationally recognized colleges and universities globally.

    College Night for Junior Families: Continuing the Conversation  
    Wednesday, November 28th at 7:00pm
    Cantwell Auditorium
    This event is mandatory for all juniors and at least one parent

    Our college counseling philosophy hinges upon the notion that truly meaningful exploration of college options takes time, and allows our students to get ahead of the college search process, rather than having it get ahead of them. This program acts as a formal start to the intensive college search process for juniors and the opportunity to gain an insider's perspective on the national landscape of higher education admissions.We are excited to be joined by Laura Stratton, the Director of Admission at Scripps College, the all women's college of the Claremont Consortium, and one of the most highly regarded in the nation.  Ms. Stratton is responsible for the day to day activities involved in student recruitment, admission and enrollment. She is in her twelfth year at Scripps, after receiving her start in college admission at her alma mater, the University of Redlands.  Ms. Stratton is a wealth of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm for the college admission process.

    Standardized Testing Night
    Wednesday, December 5th at 7pm
    Digital Resource Center
    Recommended for Sophomore and Junior parents, no students

    Everything you've ever wanted to know about standardized testing. A standardized testing professional from the Princeton Review is our guest for a comprehensive discussion about the value and use of testing in the admission process. After reviewing the results of the Princeton Review Start-Up taken earlier in the month, students explore if the SAT or ACT best suits them and how to successfully prepare. Whether a student has taken the Princeton Review Start-Up or not, this program will provide insight on the role of testing in college application review.

    This event is optional for students and parents. Sophomore families are recommended to attend and junior families are welcome.
