College Counseling and Guidance
Because we also want to help you find your place AFTER Fenwick
Fenwick’s College Counseling and Guidance Department provides ongoing resources and advising to enable students to achieve and to navigate the college selection process. Counselors meet with students individually and in small group settings throughout the year. They provide academic support, schedule advisement, post-secondary guidance, and personal counseling.
Fenwick’s Guidance department provides seminars to help prepare for greater achievement. Seminars include:
- Learning to take advantage of new opportunities
- Study skills
- Self-mastery skills
- Understanding the post-secondary landscape
Group guidance is provided for standardized testing, college counseling and career counseling. Our seminars ensure that the counselor writing your child’s college recommendation knows your child well and has been a part of your child’s efforts to reach his or her full potential while at Fenwick.
Additionally, throughout the year the department organizes parent meetings for each grade level. These meetings are meant to promote parental involvement in their child's education. The department provides parents with test results for all 9th, 10th and 11th graders, as well as college and financial aid information for juniors and seniors.
As the student's advocate, the counselor is a liaison between parent, teachers and student. Parents are encouraged to initiate calls to their child's counselor whenever they have concerns about their child's adjustment to Fenwick or academic performance.
