Grade Level Objectives

University representatives request visits on campus, or virtually, and we encourage students to take advantage of these information sessions throughout Upper School. Students are also encouraged to visit college and university websites and explore their interests throughout Upper School. It is a journey of self discovery that leads to post-secondary transitions of a better fit for you, as an individual.

Within a developmentally appropriate framework, Awty's College Counseling Department educates and advises students and families about the college admission process. Counselors help students and families make academic and college related choices that honor individual aspirations, abilities, and needs. Counselors help students build college related competencies in the personal, academic, and college/career domains, so they can prepare thoughtfully, aspire realistically, and choose wisely. Our work with students is guided by the core college admissions values outlined by the National Association of College Admissions Counseling (NACAC).
