Beginning in the Freshman or Sophomore year we meet with students and parents to:
- review the high school transcript and discuss future course selection that will reflect achievement in rigorous classes
- analyze PSAT scores as well as select and schedule standardized tests that will best demonstrate your accumulated knowledge
- decide on the most appropriate method of test preparation based on your individual needs – private tutoring vs. classes
- discuss special interests, extracurricular activities, internship possibilities, community service and summer enrichment programs and ways to maximize leadership opportunities that will bring personal satisfaction and emphasize your uniqueness
Students will take the “Where Do I Belong? and “College Personality Quiz” assessments to identify potential “fits” for their college experience. By the end of the Sophomore year, students will create a “long list” of potential colleges and universities. We will also initiate discussions on merit-based and need-based financial aid as well as share our knowledge of a range of scholarship options.
