College Advising

COLLEGE ADVISING PROGRAM

 

As a college-preparatory school, the Covenant administration seeks to fully prepare its students not only for the rigors of college, but for the college-admissions process as well.  Therefore, we have designed a College Advising Program (CAP) for this very purpose.  The goal of the program is to “demystify” the often complicated process of college admissions and engage each of our students throughout their Upper School years before graduation.  We seek to guide students and parents successfully through the maze of college admissions by identifying the key milestones, dates, and deadlines each student needs to meet in order to set themselves up for success as they seek admittance into the college of their choice.

The main components of the College Advising Program includes:

  • A college advisement period (CAP)
  • Annual parent meetings
  • Annual student meetings to discuss colleges and careers
  • Test preparation for the PSAT and SAT
  • Career exploration through Naviance
  • University visits from various colleges
  • Career panels
  • Alumni panels on college
  • Creation of a resume
  • Interview preparation and tips

STAY ON TRACK
 

Covenant recommends that students and parents set up accounts with Naviance, an online college counseling and career readiness resource. Naviance enables students to collaborate with parents, teachers and counselors to find college and career paths that match their unique goals, skills and interests. It also helps students:

*  Research college options

*  Apply for scholarships

*  Manage application timelines and deadlines

*  Build resumes

*  Track applications and admission status

*  Communicate with deans

Scholarships
 

Many colleges seek to offer scholarships to students who have achieved academic excellence in high school and performed well on SAT and ACT tests.  Covenant offers one college scholarship opportunity for graduating seniors entering a college or university the fall after graduation.  This scholarship is available to students who have successfully completed Covenant's Spanish classes.


Students wishing to apply for the Spanish scholarship may do so by emailing Mrs. Holmes.
