College Counseling

The college application process represents a significant aspect of the Westminster School experience that incorporates what students have learned about the world and themselves, 无论是在教室里还是在教室外, 并在整个大学过程中帮助指导决策. 而学生和家庭可能会感到挑战和焦虑, 这个过程与威斯敏斯特大学的申请过程有些相似, many students and families find that the college application process can be one of the most exciting and rewarding adventures! The goal is to provide advice, support and the information necessary to make the college process a positive part of the student experience.
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.

The College Process

List of 1 items.

  • Third Form Year

    Third Form students are encouraged to spend the year focusing on acclimating to the boarding school community, 在课堂上找到自信, 探索课外兴趣. 因为威斯敏斯特社区模仿的是大学社区, 学生们应该评估一下他们喜欢这段经历的哪些方面. 因为我们的大学辅导员住在校园里,完全沉浸在社区中, Third Form students have the opportunity to develop relationships with the counselors who will guide them throughout the college process.

  • Fifth Form Year

    五年级的学生们在12月举行的全年级会议上开始寻找大学. At this meeting, 向五年级学生介绍寻找大学的主要概念, 包括研究的价值, an overview of the online platforms the college office uses to manage the college search and application process, 还有重要的日期和截止日期. 他们还得到了五年级学生问卷, which is an opportunity for students to highlight their high school accomplishments and future aspirations. 一旦学生把这份文件交到学院办公室, 他们会收到大学辅导员的名字. 家长也被邀请为他们的学生填写家长问卷.
    整个冬天和春天, Fifth Form students meet individually with their College Counselor to develop a list of colleges that could be an appropriate match based on what they have learned in individual conversations with their College Counselor and attend all-Form college meetings. Students benefit from participation in the Hartford Area Independent Secondary School College Counselors Association (HAISSCCA), which hosts a college fair in the spring that is regularly attended by well over one hundred colleges from around the world.
    鼓励五年级学生在冬季或春季学期参加SAT或ACT考试. They are also invited during the fall term to take the PSAT to qualify for National Merit Scholarship opportunities. It should be noted that not all students will be required to use their standardized testing as part of their admission process and students will meet their individual counselor for the most appropriate individual strategy.
    也, in the spring, 五年级学生开始写大学论文草稿, 向老师申请大学推荐, 并开始巩固他们的最终大学名单.

  • Fourth Form Year

    四年级学生应该在威斯敏斯特社区的各个方面都表现出色. These students will be introduced to practice standardized tests - starting with the PSAT in the fall term and the PreACT in the spring term. Students will receive the results a few weeks after each test and should take these results with a grain of salt. For example, 许多四年级学生可能没有充分接触到这些测试中的所有数学内容. It should be noted that the PSAT and PreACT are not used by colleges in the admission process and we do not recommend that students do much preparation for each test. 这些测试的目的是获得可能需要改进的领域的基线.   
    Parents and guardians of Fourth Form students are invited to attend an information session hosted by the College Counseling Office during Parents and Family Weekend during the fall term.

List of 1 items.

  • Sixth Form Year

    College Counselors require Sixth Form students to submit a draft of their college essay in September and the counselors meet with students regularly throughout the admissions process. 大学辅导员通过巩固学生的大学名单来帮助他们, 决定合适的申请时间, editing essays, and completing applications. 
    Counselors host an all-Form meeting every two weeks throughout the fall term to keep students on track with their applications and to discuss larger college counseling concepts. Throughout the fall, 六年级学生与参观威斯敏斯特校区的顶尖大学代表会面. During this time, Sixth Formers have the opportunity to take the SAT or the ACT in advance of early and regular decision application deadlines in November, December, and January.
    5月1日全国高校存款截止日期, Sixth Formers are wrapping up the college process by accepting an offer of admission from a college or university.
