purpose of the Guide is:
· to help students plan for high school and maximize both high school and college opportunities
to provide resources for researching and
identifying a targeted list of colleges that meet individual student needs
· to develop personalized timelines for college testing and applying
to provide a method of collecting and
organizing all information needed for the college application process as found in the “My Stuff” section
to provide guidelines and information
needed to make the college search and application process an enjoyable, exploratory process, rather than one filled with confusion
The goal in all of this is finding the right college
match and to help each CdM student identify, apply and be accepted to a college that meets individual needs and wants.
is a match to be made, not a prize to be won. ~
Frank Sachs - Former President of the National Association of College Admissions Counseling.
are a few things to keep in mind:
is a 4-year planning guide. Each student will be issued one guide for four years so please keep it in a safe place.
Guide is designed to provide information for both students and parents. We encourage parents to encourage their students to
take the lead in managing the college planner. Students that can take individual responsibility for their academic and personal
life in high school will be much better prepared for the college search and application process and in turn more prepared
for the college experience.
REMEMBER: Marianne Scott and Kerstyn Battenberg also hold monthly College
Chats at 8:30am the third Wednesday of each month, these sessions are open to all CDM parents, please check the Counseling
Website for dates.
