大学咨询过程

Our students find their "best fit" schools through a process of self-exploration, 研究和决策.

反思和自我反省 帮助赌博软件的学生确定他们的学术优势, 对生活和学习环境的职业兴趣和偏好.

大学研究 比任何一所大学的排名都多吗. 学习什么 真的 使一所大学的课程比另一所好, what makes a small college different from a large university (or even other small colleges) helps students to bring this information into focus with what they know about themselves. This process allows them to create a list of schools that "best fit" them – maximizing the opportunity to find a community that will best meet their needs for the next four years.

决策 是过程的重要组成部分吗. Deciding where to apply and where to enroll from among admission offers are decisions the student and parent make together. Decisions based on sound reSearch are easier to make and more meaningful in the long run.

大学辅导员 serve as guides, resources and advocates for students in the college Search and application process. Our counselors have a great deal of experience and are a great source of information, 帮助和支持. 和辅导员的角色一样重要, it is also vital for each student to actively engage and openly communicate in the reSearch and decision-making processes. Counselors are more effective resources and advocates when they know a student well and are kept informed of her/his decisions along the way.

Current students and parents may find detailed college counseling information and resources by logging in to the portal and visiting the 大学咨询 Class Pages for each grade.

“大学咨询团队的沟通堪称完美. 他们领先于潜在的问题和担忧. 每个学生有一个指定的辅导员是非常有用的. The relationship that has formed between the counselor and my daughter is invaluable. 有时她父亲和我都说不出恰当的话来缓解压力, her counselor was there to offer support and (most importantly) offer a plan to stay on track and remind her to breathe. 也就是说,大学咨询办公室是一个真正的团队! Each counselor 玩ed a part in my daughter’s process at one point or another." - SSA家长,2020届.
