College Counseling

A college prep school should understand the college process, and Saint George’s does. Each student and their family receives individualized guidance throughout the process from our college counseling team, beginning with informative meetings on college and financial aid options in Middle School and continuing through the student’s Upper School years.

Our Resources

A steady stream of college representatives visit our campus.

Your student will learn about schools they might not have considered and compare how their academics and outside activities match up with what colleges are looking for in their applicants. In fact, we’ve built relationships with colleges across the country. Our counseling team knows what different schools offer and can share that with your student or contact admissions counselors with advice about your student’s particular student’s situation.

Family Connection.

Family Connection is an online college search service provided by Saint George’s for its students and families. They can take an interest survey, see how they compare with other Saint George’s students that have applied to different schools, keep track of their applications, keep their activity resume current, and link to helpful web sites for scholarships and the inside scoop on their top schools. It is a great tool to help students narrow their search—and for parents and the counselor to monitor their progress—on the way to gaining admission to the right school for them.

College trips that help students focus their search.

Saint George’s ninth graders follow that advice each year with a day-long visit to a private college in Eastern Washington. Sophomores spend three days as a class exploring a variety of schools in Oregon, and juniors can choose from week-long trips to visit California or East Coast colleges and universities. They talk to current students, tour the campuses, get a feel for life at college. And they discover how competitive the admissions process can be for top public and private institutions.
