College Guidance

The College Guidance program at Green Meadow works collaboratively with students to offer them a wide array of resources which help them identify colleges and career paths that best fit their unique talents and interests.

Our College Guidance Program starts by encouraging students as they put their best foot forward throughout their high school years. In their junior and senior years students are given access to a wide array of resources to help them identify colleges that best fit their unique talents and interests so they may enter into young adulthood courageous and well prepared.

With our faculty and college counselor as their guides, students step into a journey of self discovery as they enter high school. Through varied and rigorous course offerings, athletics, travel and wilderness experiences, and other extracurricular offerings, students develop a sense of themselves as individuals and take ownership of their high school experiences.

In 11th and 12th grades, regular, individual meetings with the college counselor, as well as open and honest communication between counselor, students, and parents/guardians, are key components of the college counseling program. We are honored to be part of this formative process in the lives of our students as they take this important next step into the world.
