College Counseling

Individualized Counseling and Support

The mission of the College Counseling Office is to help students find a home in college that will be every bit as important and inspirational to them as their home at Westminster was. To achieve this goal, dedicated and experienced counselors, with the help of an actively involved faculty, guide students though the college process. The individualized work of the counselors is enhanced by an impressive office facility, the latest college search processes and technology, and online and print resources every family needs when making college decisions.  
 
The College Office aims to develop for each student the strongest possible choices from which to select the school that is “the right fit.” While 93 percent of recent graduates have been accepted to Barron’s “Most Competitive” and “Highly Competitive” schools, Westminster is most proud of the personal satisfaction and academic success our students have found in the schools they chose – a telling reflection of both our College Office’s efforts and the caliber of our graduates.
 

The Counselors

Westminster's college counselors are professional advocates for our students. They interface with admissions officers of colleges and universities on a regular basis and serve as facilitators, guides and educators during the college application process. They know that in some ways the college process is the culmination of a student’s overall educational experience at Westminster. Their highly individualized counsel and support lead students toward making appropriate choices – something our most recent graduates often comment on after leaving Westminster.
