Navigating through the college search process is a personal journey that the school and faculty support from the very day that a student enrolls into the Andrews Osborne Academy program. Through each and every step along the way, a student is prepared to make college decisions as a result of their unique academic and extra-curricular experiences in and out of the classroom at AOA.
Our approach to college counseling is to guide students in the college search, the application, and the selection process. At AOA, we have a 4-year college counseling advisory curriculum. By starting the college process at the beginning of high school, it is our belief that our students will be better prepared to make well informed and thought-out choices regarding their college fit and major. By the spring of their junior year, when the formal college search process begins, our students will start this phase of their life feeling confident and well informed.
We will support our students in researching and identifying a range of colleges well suited to their interests, needs, and abilities. It is expected that the student will take an active role in the process of discovery in their own way and to find avenues to challenge themselves in their efforts of selection. It is important to note that there is no singular “right” college for a student. A number of colleges would be wonderful matches, and our collective goal is to identify a good student-college match.
While there are multiple resources available to our students to assist them in the college process, they are not intended to replace the personal advising they will receive from their academic advisor and the college counselor. We are available to support the student in every way we can, and we encourage and invite students and their parents to work collaboratively with us to ensure that all parties are well- supported in the college search, application, and decision process.
