College Counseling

College Counseling at Pinewood is an integral component of a high school student’s education. The process of deciding what to do after high school is a time of great discovery and development as students transition to a life of increased freedom and responsibility. Success in this process requires an open mind, strong communication, and a willingness to stretch boundaries. Our goal is to provide solid advice and guidance to students as they decide where to continue their studies after graduation.

The College Counselor, designs meetings throughout the year for freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors. Then, in the junior and senior years, students begin to meet one-on-one with the Director to discuss future plans. The College Counseling Program is highly individualized and it is the student’s responsibility to take advantage of the services that are offered.

College Counseling services include information distribution (via emails, individual notices, daily bulletin notices, advisory announcements and a college counseling resource area), sponsorship of evening programs, including two college nights (one for senior students/parents and one for junior students/parents), SAT Prep Courses, a series of college workshops for students throughout the year, assistance with essay-writing techniques and application strategies, and the scheduling of college representatives for on-campus meetings each fall.
