College Counseling

Spring College Counseling Day

The College Counseling Office is pleased to offer families an opportunity to learn more about the Developmental Counseling Model and our work with students. We invite families to contact us to ask questions, get to know the counselors, and demystify the college search process.
On this page, please find PowerPoint presentations created by members of the College Counseling Office on the topics of financial aid, athletic recruiting, and highlights from the ninth-and 10th-grade curriculum.

You can also view a video recording of a session on financial aid, which is presented by Sally O’Rourke (director of college counseling) and Michael Conklin (associate director of college counseling).
If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office!
