College Counseling

Finding the right fit for students  is the most important part of college counseling, and that process starts early. At West Sound Academy, our college counselor helps guide the college admissions process by developing a partnership with students, parents, teachers, and advisors.  Representatives from a number of colleges from around the country come to West Sound to meet with Upper School classes, and students can take advantage of opportunities to go on college campus tours.  Understanding that no two students are alike, the college counselor works with the student to find the school that best matches his or her abilities, interests, and aspirations.
