College Counseling

Our Vision

We have created a public high school with a classically based, college-preparatory curriculum designed to develop academic excellence, virtue, and leadership. Students will benefit by being fully-equipped to gain admittance to and enjoy success in the college of their choice.

College Counseling Session at The Vanguard School

Philosophy

The college counseling team partners with the entire school community in carrying out the vision of The Vanguard School. The counselors work closely with parents, administrators, and teachers to assist students in thinking about their futures and making college choices based on their skills, interests, and aspirations. The college counseling team provides information to all students and parents about opportunities throughout high school as well as details about college searches, admissions, financial aid, and scholarship opportunities.

Counselor’s Role

Counselors work closely with students starting their freshman year to help them understand our four-year graduation plan and to help them identify their individual interests, discuss career goals, and converse about the important factors in their individual college search.  We value the relationships we develop with students and their families, and we look forward to providing personal, positive, and appropriate assistance to our Vanguard community.

Our college counseling center is a great resource for:
  • Visits from college admissions representatives
  • ACT/SAT test preparation information
  • Financial aid and scholarship information
  • Summer enrichment program information
  • Resource books on colleges and careers
