Students graduate to collegiate success, but St. Mark’s never truly leaves them.
From a student’s first day on campus, preparation begins for life after St. Mark’s. Our college counselors become immediately acquainted with students to help guide them towards their next steps. It is a process that builds confidence and provides autonomy.
Meet the Office
Given the intentionally small nature of our school community, the College Counseling Office is an integral part of a team of caring adults who aid in this development.
Matriculation List and School Profile
On average, students matriculate at sixty different schools each year. Virtually all St. Mark’s graduates enroll in a four-year institution immediately upon graduation.
Planning by Form
Important information for each from as it related to the college counseling process.
One of the most challenging (and important) parts of our jobs is helping students and parents understand that the college process is highly individualized. While it may be comforting to think of the college process as a series of neatly choreographed steps or a recipe that everyone follows in lockstep, the reality is a whole lot more nuanced.
Whether we are talking about the rigor of one’s schedule, when (or if) to take a standardized test, when and how to apply to a college, as well as myriad other things, the best and most honest answer to most any question is, “It depends.” The job of college counselors is to decode this statement for each student and family and to help guide a thoughtful and purposeful process.
