Upper School
College Counseling

Overview

Our seniors could not be better prepared for college.

Our seniors are well prepared for college. Our college counseling program focuses on "counseling" rather than “placement”. It is the colleges themselves who make the admissions decisions, and we are here to counsel, guide and support students through the application process.

Our aim is help students create a list of colleges at any one of which they will thrive. Our support and guidance takes the form of a thorough, structured program that takes into account age-appropriate advice, activities and events throughout high school while our counseling simultaneously takes the form of individual meetings with the counselor that increase in frequency in the junior and senior years. Our process includes intensive work with parents as well as teachers, coaches, activity advisors and college admissions representatives. At CCA we are fortunate in being able to know our students well, and thus to be honest and affectionate advocates to the colleges on their behalf.

Choosing a college is time-consuming and at times may be frustrating, but it can also be an opportunity for self-exploration and increased family communication. It can be a time of tremendous growth as a young person prepares to experience greater independence away from home. Our college counseling program is here to act as a support and resource throughout the process. Cape Cod Academy looks forward to working closely with you.
