年复一年:每个学生都准备好了

4项清单.

  • 9年级

    This is a time to focus on the transition to 上学校 while keeping in mind that transcripts do begin in 9th grade.

    而正式的大学咨询还没有开始, all parents are welcome to attend "getting ready for college" presentations where college and university representatives explain the selective admissions process. These presentations help families figure out which school characteristics best suit their children. 谈话是坦诚的,内容丰富的. 父母 get to ask an admission officer all the questions on their minds. 过去的演讲者包括来自贝茨学院的代表, 霍巴特和威廉史密斯学院, 约翰霍普金斯大学, 和里士满大学.
  • 10年级

    The official start of the college counseling process begins the spring of the 10th grade year. 父母 attend a workshop introducing standardized testing and the differences between the ACT and the SAT. Students are encouraged to take practice SAT and ACT tests offered at St. 来决定哪种测试最适合他们. Tenth graders have one-on-one meetings with college counselors to discuss the upcoming fall college trip for the 11th grade class.
  • 11年级

    The 11th grade starts the year visiting three colleges with classmates, 老师, 还有大学辅导员. This introduces juniors to the college process and gives them a common set of experiences to draw from throughout their college exploration.

    今年初秋的时候, parents attend a practical "nuts and bolts" college admissions workshop prior to the college orientation in January (for all 11th graders and their parents). Eleventh-grade students meet individually with their college counselor beginning in November and individualized family conferences begin in January. The ongoing conferences help students develop search criteria and create a long list of colleges that match their needs and desires. The counselor helps families decide which colleges to visit during Spring Break.

    Students in 11th grade attend college counseling class one day during each eight-day rotation beginning in the spring semester. The course exposes students to Naviance and other tools for college searches and offers time to work on applications and essays. 学生学会避免常见的申请错误, 写一篇有效的文章, 在面试中给人留下积极的印象. 学生们也开始思考他们的成就, 利益, 人生观, and personal qualities—thinking that prepares them for decisions and challenges ahead.

    11年级暑假:
    Families travel to a range of colleges on the long list to gather initial impressions. Summer conferences are easily arranged with the counselors for further conversation about colleges. The 大学咨询 Office also holds several essay writing workshops during the summer.
  • 12年级

    在秋季的第一次会议上, counselors help students trim their long list to a short list of strong options—largely based on campus visit reactions. We help students create a plan to remain organized and focused during the fall as they move through the application process. Twelfth grade students meet with their counselors whenever they have questions or need advice. 学生提交申请后, 辅导员提交学校文件, 包括老师的建议, 然后给招生办公室打电话.

We want the college counseling process to mark the end of a great journey through St. 卢克的. It is a time for students to reflect on their relationships and experiences—and a time for making a lot of decisions. We hope students focus on what they want rather than what colleges want. 这些都是粗体, 聪明的, 有趣的, 有创意的, 快乐的, 好奇的, 富有同情心的, 有才华又善良的年轻人. 任何学校拥有他们都是幸运的."
