College Counseling

You are here

The college counselor helps students and their parents navigate the college admissions process and find the school which is the proper “fit” for the family.  This process begins in grade 9 with Freshman College Planning Night for students and their parents. The College Counselor covers the basics of beginning the search for the right college. During freshman year, the College Counselor will also meet with students to cover course selection during High School and discuss career planning.

The Academy uses Naviance, a comprehensive, online college and career readiness solution for Junior High and High School that helps connect academic achievement to post-secondary goals.  Naviance allows students to prepare for life after High School by helping them discover their individual strengths and learning styles and explore college and career options based on their results.  Naviance helps students plan which courses they need to take to meet their college and career goals.

Academy’s counselors focus on using Naviance to aid students in grades seven to 11 assess their goals, skills, knowledge, values, interests, personality and strengths, set goals and build their resumes and begin career explorations.  Academy’s College Counselor encourages juniors and seniors and their families to employ Naviance to make informed decisions about post-secondary choices. Through Naviance, students can compare colleges and universities, schedule college visits and explore scholarship opportunities.  In addition, a large percentage of colleges and universities and a growing number of scholarship organizations only accept online admissions applications, and Naviance allows students to post and track the status of their applications and supporting admissions documents.
