Stevenson’s multi-phased junior year college counseling program consists of the following:
Junior College Night (October): A large group presentation for juniors and their parents by Stevenson college counselors. Topics such as standardized testing, senior year course selection, and important factors to consider when investigating colleges were covered.
Student Focus Seminars (April): Juniors come to the College/Career Center by way of their math classes. These period-long meetings feature a college admission representative, along with a college counselor. After general comments about the college admissions/selection process, students are provided a forum to ask questions and voice concerns.
Post Secondary SCoPE Meetings (January-June): Families have the option to arrange an individual 30-minute appointment with a SHS college counselor. Students complete a college information profile which includes a wish list of colleges. In addition to discussing individual colleges and making suggestions, the meeting covers a student’s transcript, senior course selections and the college search/admission process in general.
