From day one, our faculty sets out to get to know well each student. What interests him? What books can't he put down? Does he have a knack for the arts or athletics? What kind of a leader is he?
The depth of the faculty-student relationships built over time allows us to recognize and nurture our students' distinctive talents, which provide the framework for ultimately supporting their decisions in choosing the college that best fits them.
There is no one set path, even among our highest achievers. Take three stellar, academically talented students from the Class of 2015. Josh ultimately chose to pursue his gift of music - one of his many gifts - at the Berklee College of Music. For Robert, it was his love of culinary arts that made the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration his top choice. And for Jared, who wasn't ready to hang up his lacrosse gloves, Colby College made the most sense; he could keep playing while pursuing a liberal arts education at a highly selective school.
It is only through embracing the complete identity of a student that we can successfully guide students to select the schools that best align with his full range of interests and hopes for the future.
It's never too early to begin planning. Get in touch with us today to get started.
