The college selection process promises to be a busy and exciting time as seniors embark on the quest to find the “best fit” college to match their interests. Pope Prep counselors offer a structured college counseling program to provide information, advice, support, and resources. Students are encouraged to consider colleges and universities that are appropriately challenging and well-suited to their interests while also meeting their needs.
Students are encouraged to take primary ownership in choosing a college for themselves by doing research, submitting applications, writing essays, meeting deadlines, and making final decisions. A school counselor and family may assist. However, since students are on the cusp of being “on their own,” it is vital that they be the primary facilitators in their first steps toward independence.
