College Counseling at Pinewood is an integral component of high school education. The process of deciding what to do after high school is a time of great discovery and development as students transition to a life of increased freedom and responsibility. Success in this process requires an open mind, strong communication, and a willingness to stretch boundaries. Our goal is to provide solid advice and guidance to students as they decide where to continue their studies after graduation.
The College Counselor designs meetings throughout the year for freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors. Then, in the junior and senior years, students begin to meet one-on-one with the President to discuss future plans. The College Counseling Program is highly individualized, in true Pinewood style!
College Counseling services include the monthly College Counselling Journal with announcements, resources, advice & tips, sponsorship of evening programs, including two college nights (one for senior students/parents and one for junior students/parents), SAT Prep Courses, several college workshops, seminars for essay-writing techniques and application strategies, and finally, the scheduling of college representatives for on-campus meetings each fall.
Each year, a notable number of university admissions representatives from the United States visit Pinewood and present important admissions, scholarship and financial aid information to our Junior and Senior classes. See the universities that visited Pinewood this year.
