College Placement

During the spring of junior year, each student meets a member of the college counseling team to initiate the college planning process. After reviewing the student’s selection of senior courses, considering his testing plans, and discussing his personal questionnaire, the counselor and student begin to generate a list of potential colleges to pursue.

This initial college list serves as a foundation for the college search, but it is updated, added to, and changed throughout the process. In many cases, this initial list is quite large and will require further clarification of preferences on the student’s part.

After careful research and more discussion, the student begins to plan campus visits. The optimum time for visiting is from July to early September. Once school has begun, seniors are granted college visiting days as needed.

The final list, indicating where each student will apply, will be generated following another meeting with each senior in the early fall.

Students then begin organizing application requirements for each school, writing applications and completing essays. Our philosophy is to let a student be in charge of his own process and to encourage him to use the advice of the placement office as often as needed. It is crucial that parents guard against taking over the process.

Since much of the application process occurs at home, parents are encouraged to monitor their son’s progress and to alert us immediately if they see any significant signs of procrastination.

Involvement of the college counselors will continue until late spring, when every student has made a final decision. The College Placement Office prides itself on being supportive of our students every step of the way.
