College Guidance

counselor advising high school student

Support is available to assist students in preparing and registering for college admissions tests. College guidance at Shortridge Academy begins with the premise that students who achieve the greatest success in the college admission process are able to find the “right fit” based on an understanding of their strengths, passions, and interests. Through one-on-one meetings, students participate in self-assessments, identify their needs and interests, and learn to navigate a variety of resources in order to develop a balanced list of schools. In addition, students are supported throughout the application process and are provided with assistance in organizing application materials, procuring letters of recommendation, writing essays, meeting application deadlines, and preparing for campus visits and interviews.

SAT tutoring is available through a local, off-site provider. Our college counselor assists students in signing up for tests, applies for accommodations for students as needed, and coordinates transportation to and from local high schools where the tests are offered.
