inding the best college or university to match each individual student’s needs and interests is the ambition of the college counseling office.
Mrs. Penny Cunningham, the Director of College Counseling, conducts a comprehensive program with the students throughout their upper school careers. She advises them on the college search porcess, financial aid, testing, and the college application and selection process.
In addition to individual meetings with students and parents, a major part of college counseling is done in conjunction with the Naviance Family Connection program. This web based program allows students to research colleges and scholarships, practice for standardized testing and experience a personality assessment which ties to an extensive career listing and much more. Students receive log in information for the Naviance program in their sophomore year and begin meeting with Mrs. Cunningham on a more regular basis at that time.
The culmination of the college counseling process is during the senior year when seniors are enrolled in the Senior Seminar Class. Senior Seminar Class meets one day a week and is dedicated to the college process. This is a terrific opportunity for the seniors to work in small groups on specific college related topics, to have hands on work time for college applications, and to ask any questions about the process.
Overall, the college search and selection process at Linsly is very personalized. The combination of Mrs. Cunningham, the Linsly faculty, and the Naviance Program empower the students with the understanding of their academic and personal priorities when selecting an institution of higher learning.
Recently graduated seniors have been accepted in many extraordinary colleges and universities
