Talk to any college representative visiting our campus and he or she will tell you that a Worcester Academy education is highly regarded for having prepared students for the real world – and for the next step in their lives.
The role of the College Counseling Office is to help students make good educational choices, to serve as a liaison to colleges, and to advocate strongly for our students. The goal is to help Worcester Academy students identify and apply for admission to colleges and universities that are well suited to their interests, abilities, and aspirations.
Beginning with the spring semester of the junior year, the College Counseling staff conducts programs and workshops, hosts college representatives, and holds one-on-one meetings to educate students and families about the many different pieces of the college admission puzzle.
Counselors, students, and parents use an online research tool, NAVIANCE, as the primary means of communicating (deadlines and calendar items, college lists, transcript requests, recommendation requests, and test scores).
By senior year, Worcester Academy students are well positioned to compete for entrance into freshman classes at colleges and universities across the country and around the world – academic programs that fit students' aspirations and realize their academic potential.
