Winter term in the Fifth Form year is the time when students begin their individual meetings with their college counselors. During these meetings the counselors help the students investigate the many different college options, plan their standardized testing schedules, research and plan summer activities and make fall curriculum choices. Students are asked to complete a self-evaluation, develop a résumé and brainstorm ideas for college application essays. In addition to the College Seminar, students are offered a series of workshops on the application process and essay writing. Over the course of the Winter and Spring Terms, the student and counselor work closely together to develop a college list.
