College Counseling

At GFS, we view the college process as a reflective, critical journey toward self actualization. It is comprised of research, campus visits, the identification of best-fit schools, and completing and submitting applications. Though overwhelming at times, it can also be exciting, enlightening, and, ultimately, deeply rewarding.

The College Process

Applying to college is not only about finding a school that is the right fit; it is about self-discovery. The process of inquiry and transition challenges students to think creatively and explore options they may not have previously considered. Throughout their junior and senior years, students will become increasingly responsible for managing their college search. As they take ownership of this process, they continue to learn how to think critically, communicate effectively, self-advocate, and build relationships—the very skills that will help them make a successful transition from high school to college and beyond.
