College Counseling Mission & Services
The Academy recognizes how stressful and demanding the college application process can be for students and their families. Therefore, one of the primary goals of College Counseling at the Academy is to provide students with the tools they will need beginning upon entrance to our school.
Students will participate in relevant and critical activities each of their years at the Academy in preparation for a successful college search and application process. The program is designed to assist each student in discovering her own personal strengths and interests to find the college that is the best fit for them.

By providing these fundamental building blocks, our students are well prepared to navigate this important phase of their young lives. The Academy utilizes Naviance, a leading college, career and life-readiness program which reinforces these skills.
