College Counseling

大学申请过程代表了皇冠有钱手机app经历的一个重要方面,它融合了学生对世界和自己的了解, both in and out of the classroom, and helps to guide decisions throughout the college process. While students and families may feel challenged and anxious, the process is somewhat similar to the application process at Westminster, 许多学生和家庭发现,大学申请过程可能是最令人兴奋和有益的冒险之一! The goal is to provide advice, 支持和必要的信息,使大学过程成为学生体验的积极部分.
大学咨询办公室的任务是帮助学生在大学里找到一个家,这个家对他们来说和他们在威斯敏斯特的家一样重要和鼓舞人心.

The College Process

List of 1 items.

  • Third Form Year

    三年级学生被鼓励花一年的时间专注于适应寄宿学校社区, finding confidence in the classroom, and exploring extracurricular interests. Since the Westminster community mimics that of a college community, students should take stock of what they enjoy about this experience. Since our college counselors live on campus and are fully immersed in the community, 三年级学生有机会与辅导员建立关系,辅导员将在整个大学过程中指导他们.

  • Fifth Form Year

    Fifth Form students begin engaging with the college search in December with an all-Form meeting. At this meeting, Fifth Formers are introduced to key college search concepts, including the value of research, 概述学院办公室用于管理大学搜索和申请流程的在线平台, and important dates and deadlines. They are also given the Fifth Form Student Questionnaire, 哪一个是一个机会,让学生突出他们的高中成绩和未来的愿望. Once students turn this document into the college office, they receive the name of their College Counselor. Parents are also invited to complete the Parent Questionnaire for their student.
     
    Throughout the winter and spring, 五年级的学生与他们的大学辅导员单独会面,根据他们在与大学辅导员的个人对话中了解到的情况,并参加所有年级的大学会议,制定一份合适的大学名单. 参加哈特福德地区独立中学大学辅导员协会(HAISSCCA)的学生受益。, 哪所大学每年春天都会举办大学博览会,定期有来自世界各地的一百多所大学参加.
     
    Fifth Form students are encouraged to take either the SAT or ACT during the winter or spring terms. 他们还被邀请在秋季学期参加PSAT以获得国家优秀奖学金的资格. 需要注意的是,并不是所有的学生都被要求使用他们的标准化测试作为录取过程的一部分,学生将与他们的个人顾问会面,以获得最合适的个人策略.
     
    Also, in the spring, Fifth Form students begin to write a college essay draft, request college recommendations from their teachers, and begin to solidify their final college list.

List of 1 items.

  • Fourth Form Year

    Fourth Form students should be hitting their stride in all aspects of the Westminster community. 这些学生将参加标准化考试——从秋季学期的PSAT和春季学期的PreACT开始. 学生将在每次考试几周后收到结果,并对这些结果持保留态度. For example, many Fourth Formers may not have received full exposure to all of the math that is on these tests. 需要注意的是,大学在录取过程中不会使用PSAT和PreACT,我们不建议学生为每次考试做太多准备. The purpose of these tests is to gain a baseline on possible areas to improve.   
     
    四年级学生的家长和监护人被邀请参加由学院辅导办公室在秋季学期的家长和家庭周末举办的信息发布会.

List of 1 items.

  • Sixth Form Year

    大学辅导员要求六年级学生在9月份提交一份大学论文草稿,辅导员在整个录取过程中定期与学生见面. The College Counselors support students by solidifying their college lists, deciding on appropriate application timelines, editing essays, and completing applications. 
     
    在整个秋季学期,辅导员每两周召开一次全体会议,让学生们跟上他们的申请进度,并讨论更大的大学咨询概念. Throughout the fall, Sixth Formers meet with representatives from leading universities who visit the Westminster campus. During this time, 六年级学生有机会在11月的早期和常规申请截止日期之前参加SAT或ACT考试, December, and January.
     
    By the May 1 national college deposit deadline, 六年级学生通过接受学院或大学的录取通知书来结束大学进程.
