Our College Access team works comprehensively with High School Scholars to provide hands-on assistance throughout the college selection and application process.
- Identify “good fit” schools that meet their academic, social, and financial needs and build their college lists based on these criteria.
- Work to maximize their standardized test scores and high school academics, including formalized test preparation classes.
- Develop self-awareness of identity and personality type and take an interest and skills inventory.
- Practice communication, study skills, time management, and goal-setting.
- Engage in meaningful summer activities such as pre-college on-campus programs, internships, work, and volunteering.
- Learn about net college costs, relationships between grades and scholarships/financial aid, and outside scholarship opportunities.
- Receive individualized counseling with their families to complete FAFSA and make an in-depth, side-by-side comparison of financial aid awards from all colleges to which they were accepted.
