ABOUT THE COLLEGE RESOURCE CENTER

Philosophy & Curriculum

The philosophy of the College Resource Center is that students (and parents) select a college based upon fit! Our college counseling curriculum is based upon a developmental model that recognizes that students will possibly change their interests over the course of their high school experience which will impact college choice. Beginning in November of the student's junior year, students and parents will begin their journey with self-exploration that will lead to a "shopping list" of characteristics. Throughout the next 18 months of the program, students and parents can utilize the resources of the College Resource Center and their counselors to promote a well thought out and explored college selection.

College Appointments

Students and parents can schedule appointments to meet with Dr. Boyle. Students are invited to visit the College Resource Center to obtain a college appointment request form to provide student/parent availability and preliminary information for Dr. Boyle. Visiting the College Resource Center to obtain this form will provide an opportunity for the student to become familiar with the resource center and it's staff. Juniors can complete a request form beginning second semester.

In addition, students seeking academic support services while in college are invited to meet with Mr. Gatchalian, Transition Coordinator, to discuss various options. Mr. Gatchalian's office is located within the Special Education Department on the second floor.
