The College Counseling department assists students in the college exploration and application process. Grier School College Counselors help students identify colleges that are a good fit academically and socially through self-evaluation. We educate our students on the college admissions process and how to use the resources available to them for their college search. This is done through individual meetings and structured small group seminars in the sophomore, junior, and senior years. In addition, students in their junior year attend a National College Fair to meet with college admissions representatives. Though students are responsible for the completion of their applications, they receive assistance through weekly individual meetings and application workshops.
To supplement our college advising, all students meet with their college counselor yearly to discuss their academic goals. In this meeting, students and counselors review the student’s academic record, discuss their post high school plans, and choose courses for the following year.
