The Counseling Office’s goal is to keep you informed as your son moves through the college application process.
- 3 Reach Schools – where your son’s GPA and test scores are slightly below the average for that school
- 3 Target Schools – where your son’s GPA and test scores are at the average for that school
- 3 Likely Schools – where your son’s GPA and test scores fall above the average for that school
This information, along with other important documents and links, can be found in Naviance. We encourage you to visit Naviance frequently to review the list and other factors that will help you and your son determine the college that’s best for him.
The college application process has become increasingly complicated and stressful in the last several years as more and more students are applying. Therefore, it is imperative that high school juniors begin the initial college search process in the later part of their junior year and the summer before their senior year.
The keys to successfully applying to colleges are organization and follow-through. To help our Cadets in these key areas, we hold several presentations for both Cadets and Parents.
Last year, we held a college weekend seminar workshop for our seniors in the fall that was a huge success. Cadets reported that they felt supported while completing their applications due to this workshop and support of their Counselors and teachers.
We look forward to continuing to provide your son with opportunities to help him through the college application process and in determining a best fit college and/or career.
