As experts on the college search process, the College Counseling Office helps our students explore their goals and make informed educational choices. Acceptance at a college or university that matches the student’s educational, social, geographic and financial needs is vital, and we work with students to find the place where they will flourish academically, socially and professionally. The Masters School College Counseling Office takes a personalized approach to supporting and guiding students through this journey of self-exploration as they look to life beyond Masters.
Our team members have advanced degrees in counseling and significant college admissions experience. We understand the importance of helping students to articulate their interests, skills and aspirations, accommodate their preferred style of learning and match these to their choice of colleges and universities. We cultivate strong relationships with our students and are committed advisors and advocates throughout the entire experience.
Students meet with us beginning in tenth grade. During this time, we get to know them and examine their goals. During the eleventh grade year, we begin with developing each student’s individual standardized testing plan, and focus on criteria building and institutional research. Throughout the academic year we host roundtable discussions and presentations for all grade levels. We offer workshops for students, by counselor caseload, ranging from the application itself and interviewing to resume building. During the summer leading into and including the fall of twelfth grade, we collaborate with students on every facet of their respective experiences, including but not limited to, their essays and supplements, the crafting of their applications, and the submission of all their application materials to the schools.
We bring upwards of 130 college admissions representatives to campus each year to meet with interested students. These representatives hold Masters students in high regard for their self-confidence, work ethic, enthusiasm for learning and ability to define and achieve success.
