College Counseling

Personalized and Individual

The process of college counseling in general is both an art and a science. At West Nottingham Academy our students receive personalized and individual counseling to direct them through the application process and to discover schools that are the right match for their goals. Through individual conferences, and attention to the details of each step in the college application process, the college counseling office seeks to understand what students are looking for in a college and their future aspirations beyond college to help them find the very best possible match in their undergraduate education. Our goal is to support each student in identifying colleges and universities which are a good match for their interests and support the student and family throughout the application process. (Parents are encouraged to be part of the process at all times).

While well-supported every step of the way, students are given increasing responsibility for researching schools and compiling all the necessary documentation needed to complete each application. Our goal is not only for every senior to have a number of wonderful offers of admission from which to choose, but for that student to feel ownership in the process and responsibility for his or her success Many resources are available. Our experience as a college preparatory school is at your disposal and if you work hard as a student and attend diligently to the demands of the college process, you, like many before you, will indeed have several schools from which to choose.

The process of college admissions begins the day a student enrolls at WNA. Students in every grade are served and encouraged to be a part of the journey of exploration and discovery. Click here for the 2016 College Acceptance List.
