For an international group of students considering university studies in various countries, the array of possibilities can be at once fascinating and potentially bewildering. In their pursuit of a good fit for higher education Marymount students explore possibilities across the globe in a wide range of educational systems. Therefore, helping students to know themselves, presenting them with appropriate options, teaching them to research schools and present themselves effectively and, finally, preparing them to make good choices about their university studies are the priorities of the college counseling program.
Although our High School students are preparing for university entrance from the first day of their arrival at Marymount through a rigorous program of study and numerous extracurricular opportunities, the college counseling program begins in earnest in Grade 10. Its aim is to help students understand the process and take charge of their own path so that the college search and application process become an exciting and enjoyable part of their overall education. Indeed, a great deal of learning and personal growth takes place as students assess themselves and make decisions about how and where they learn best.
Students in Grades 11 and 12 meet regularly with the college counselor and they also have the opportunity to meet representatives from many colleges and universities from around the world throughout the year as organized by the College Counseling office. Individual guidance is provided for each student in choosing an appropriate list of colleges to which to apply, creating a testing plan, writing effective applications, interviewing well, responding to offers and evaluating college costs.
The college counselor maintains contacts with colleges and universities across the globe in order to stay abreast of changes and find new opportunities for our students. He or she hosts representatives in Rome and brings them to our school to meet with students, remains in contact to facilitate applications and visits colleges and universities whenever possible.
