Senior Year

During the senior year, students will have the challenge of juxtaposing two skill sets in order to work through the admission process. On one hand, you're encouraged to think broadly, deeply examining your personal strengths and needs, and doing some serious reflection, all with the goal of uncovering a balanced list of colleges that you are thrilled to apply to and that you love! On the other hand, this process is filled with details and deadlines, and you must remain fully organized and in tune to all the minute pieces that need tending.
With the guidance of the college counselors, seniors will maneuver through this delicate balancing act, all the while keeping an eye fixed on the goal of this journey; to find your future home, community and academic contemporaries. With the doors always open, college counselors will walk you through each step at a time, supporting you as you ultimately make your final college decision.
