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.
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.
