College Counseling

The goal of the college counseling office is to help students make informed educational choices, be experts on the college search process, and advocate strongly for our students with college admission offices. While acceptance at a college or university that matches the student’s educational, social, geographic and financial needs is vital, the Masters college office takes a very personalized approach that guides students through a process of self-exploration so they may learn more about themselves to help create a positive vision before they move on to the next, more independent phase of their life. All counselors have Master’s degrees in counseling psychology and recognize the importance of helping students to articulate their interests and skills, to examine their personality and aspirations and link these to their choice of colleges and universities.

Our team begins the process in tenth grade and is dedicated to understanding and helping determine each student’s college goals, coupled with knowledgeable advice and attention to detail, in order to ensure a timely—and successful—process. We bring more than 130 college representatives to our campus each year and they will tell you how well prepared Masters students are to achieve in college and beyond.  Reflecting the diversity of our student body, Masters graduates matriculate at a broad range of colleges and universities, including the most selective institutions in the nation and abroad.
