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.
