Summary: At St. George's, the formal college counseling process begins in the fifth form year, with students and advisors meeting in large group, small group, and one-to-one sessions to assess student interests, discuss career goals, weigh the importance of factors such as location, cost, size, and extra-curricular activities, and gain a sense of the range of selectivity a student should have in mind in his or her research of colleges.
College counselors at St. George's help a student identify a group of colleges that meet the student's needs academically and that will provide an appropriate environment for a student's continuing personal and intellectual growth. We are in the business of enabling students to see a match, and then aiding them in making that match with colleges throughout the application process. We visit college campuses, attend professional conferences and workshops, and host at St. George's one hundred colleges a year. We offer informed advice to students and their parents at every stage in the transition from the Hilltop to the future, and we value the relationships we establish with families in the course of our counseling efforts.
