College Counseling

Graduates toss their caps into the air

During your Upper School journey, you’ll benefit from the wisdom and guidance of our College Counselors, who will empower, advise, and support you through your transition to higher education.

Starting with college awareness in ninth grade and continuing through personalized college planning during junior and senior years, you’ll have access to a wide array of resources. Our comprehensive four-year program matches your talents and aspirations with your best fit colleges and universities for the next stop on your educational journey.

Your College Counselor partners with you and your parents to enable self-discovery, uncovering opportunities that fit your unique strengths, talents, and personality. We’ll assist you with all aspects of articulating authentic admission credentials: assembling a meaningful college list, crafting your college essays and resumes, researching academic, professional, and cocurricular programs, and interviewing. You’ll meet with admissions professionals who visit Woodward, get advice on shaping your academic and cocurricular life, attend college fairs, learn how to make college affordable, engage with Woodward alumni panels for insight into college and careers, and so much more.
