Laurel Springs is committed to offering families the help they need to navigate the college admissions process. Our school counselors all hold Master’s degrees and are skilled in college counseling.
College Counseling Program
The Laurel Springs college counseling program is provided for all students in grades 8-12. Your child will have access to one-on-one coaching sessions and live webinars. Our college counseling webinars explore subjects such as selecting the right college, college entrance exam preparation, college application assistance, parent resources, and scholarship or financial aid resources.
The school counselor is the first point of contact for the student and family for college counseling. Whether the family is experienced at distance learning or needs help making the transition, the school counselor is there for support, and guides the student through high school seminar courses. These courses introduce students to college and life planning, preparation for standardized tests, writing skills, decision-making strategies, time management, and academic integrity. For each year of high school, students receive .5 credits for these required courses.
For high school seniors, the school counselor plays a key role in keeping students focused and on track for graduation. School counselors coordinate with the student’s teachers, write up to five college recommendation letters, and assist in the preparation of college application essays.
