The college application and admissions process can be a complicated and challenging exercise for students and parents.
At DeMatha, the College Counselor prepares each student to undertake this task by helping him to identify his choices, informing him about college visits and scholarship opportunities, and assisting him in the preparation of applications. The College Counselor holds parent meetings over the course of the year about college selection, financing and other college related concerns. Students and parents are encouraged to meet with the College Counselor in late junior and early senior year to begin this process.
These college information pages are designed to provide parents and students with some of the necessary resources and information needed during the college selection process. The ultimate goal is to match each student's interests and talents with the most appropriate institution so that he will be happy and successful, fulfilling his potential for growth. Each student is encouraged to use his Naviance account as a research and planning tool in the college application process.
