DIRECTOR OF COLLEGE COUNSELING: Ellen Masten, NCC
The College Counseling Program provides students and parents with guidance throughout the college search and application process. Our goal is to help students find colleges where they will be challenged, where they will be happy, and where they will succeed. The program covers university and college requirements and application procedures including financial aid, registration deadlines, and administration dates for current College Board and ACT tests.
We educate, assist, and support our students throughout the college search, and we expect them to take control of the process. Our job is to guide, counsel, question, recommend, refer, suggest, and inform. In the end, students who are happiest about the college process are those who ask themselves the hard questions, understand their abilities and needs best, and who are, therefore, and work to find a good match.
Our students use Naviance, a college and career readiness site with a virtual library of college catalogues, videos, personality and interest assessments, and much more. The College Counselor arranges for on-campus visits with college admissions officers and provides information and advice about internships and summer opportunities. Juniors participate in a year-long college preparation class called Pathways I; seniors participate in Pathways II during the fall semester, as well as meeting with the College Counselor individually.
