“College is not a prize to be won. It is a match to be made.”
- Frank Sachs, past NACAC President and renowned Director of College Counseling at The Blake School
The College Advising staff act as the students and their families' greatest ally and supporter throughout the college search and application processes. The purpose of the College Advising Office at All Saints Episcopal School is to empower and educate each student with the information necessary to identify the next stop on his or her educational journey.
We understand that each student’s journey is unique and pride ourselves on the personal attention provided to each student. We expect all students to take the initiative in their own process with guidance and support from the College Advising Office. We will help guide self-reflection and evaluation regarding student needs and desires throughout a student’s time at ASES. This allows students the opportunity to find the best school for them which is our ultimate goal for each student.
The formal college process begins during junior year. However, at All Saints, we initiate the college conversation during a student’s 8th grade conference and begin comprehensive college programs in the 9th grade. We believe the more education and knowledge we can provide to our students and families, the more prepared they will be for success throughout this journey.
There is often anxiety associated with the college process, and it is our belief that through education, self-evaluation, and utilization of the college advisors, the process will be as stress-free as possible. Success in this journey will come from the student’s initiative, investment, choices, work ethic, and attitude. We look forward to being next to your student every step of his or her journey. Undoubtedly, an ASES education is an investment in your student’s future. Year after year, we watch our graduates enjoy success intellectually, socially, and personally at the colleges and universities they choose.
