College Counseling

AT THE NEWMAN SCHOOL

College preparation of Newman School students begins in their first year at the school. From the moment they walk through our doors, students start to establish the organizational skills, personal responsibility and academic focus that lead them toward college acceptance and success.

AN OPEN DOOR APPROACH TO COLLEGE COUNSELING

Throughout their years at Newman we encourage students to look toward their college futures and offer an array of resources designed to help them find good matches between themselves and their universities. Our resources include seasoned college counselors, a wealth of printed and online tools such as Naviance, and informational workshops on the college discovery process. 

The small size of our school enables our counseling staff to better know each student as an individual and provide skilled guidance toward the best college matches. We leave the door open for all students, from their first year forward, to find out more about their college choices and the opportunities available to them. It is a student-centered approach that helps Newman students to find both greater satisfaction and success in their college years.

RESOURCES AND TOOLS FOR SMART COLLEGE CHOICES

Navigating the extraordinarily complex college choice landscape can be daunting to take on for students and families.  From the exams and essays through the choice options, applications and financial aid, the Newman School provides students, from their first steps into our school, with the tools and the internal  and external resources they need to make the right choices with confidence.

The school’s size plays to each student’s favor; our college counseling staff, administration and teachers maintain an open door policy toward our students.  Smaller class sizes offer time for more individual attention to each student, and the school’s reputation among top tier universities enables us to provide a solid foundation for selection.

NAVIANCE’S FAMILY CONNECTION

Through Naviance, an internet-based planning and data-management program, Newman offers parents and students a range of tools to work at home.  Students have access to resources like SAT preparation, college research knowledge and college comparisons, resume-creation help – even a calendar for tracking of college visits.
