College Counseling and Admissions
Preparing for, and selecting a college while navigating the complex application process can be both exciting and hopeful. It is often stressful as well. Because Voyagers’ Community School students play a greater role in their own academic success than they would in most traditional schools, they are well-equipped to face the challenges of preparing for and selecting a suitable college.
We partner with every Voyagers’ student to walk them through the college selection and application process. While parents, teachers, and students may have different ideas for a student’s future, it is our goal to provide the most comprehensive information and advisement, so families can make informed decisions.
College and post-high school planning is a collaborative process and an ideal opportunity for students to take ownership of their lives and their futures while keeping parents informed and involved in the decision-making process. We encourage our students to take initiative and responsibility for this important life milestone. By providing each student with a multifaceted assessment of their needs, interests, and abilities we are able to guide them toward the best possible school choice.
