La Salle Academy's experienced College Counseling team provides comprehensive advisement to students and their families throughout the college selection and application process. By working closely with class deans and faculty, counselors help students find a post-secondary option that best fits their strengths, interests, and goals. Beginning sophomore year, students have access to information specific to the college selection process. Then, at the start of their junior year, students are assigned their college counselors.
During this process, students and parents have access to a selection of resources, including Naviance Student. This web-based resource provides data and historical statistics on colleges and universities; giving students insight on how particular schools fit with their academic history.
Each fall, the College Counseling Office hosts more than two hundred college and university admissions representatives from
across the world. Seniors are encouraged to meet with them in order to learn specific application requirements. In addition, college counselors host evening events for parents that cover a wide range of topics, including:
- College search process.
- Applying to colleges.
- College essay.
- Standardized testing.
- Letters of recommendation.
- Financial aid.
- Merit scholarships.
- Searching for private scholarships.
The College Counseling Office has two primary goals: have students take responsibility throughout the college admission process and ensure open communication by creating partnerships with parents.
Our counselors look forward to working with your family during this exciting time.
