The purpose of the Office of the College Counselor is to provide useful and current information on a variety of college admissions issues. Trinity’s College Counseling Program works closely with students and parents in finding a college or university that will enrich the life of the student.
Family Connection at Naviance is the latest tool being used by Trinity Presbyterian School. Every student from grades 9-12 has set up access to individual students records. In addition, parents of juniors and seniors have also set up access to view their student’s records. Students and parents can access the Naviance accounts at www.connection.naviance.com/trinitywildcats.
The College Counseling Office begins meeting with students and parents in the freshman and sophomore years to provide an overview of Trinity’s College Counseling office and the college search timeline. In the junior year, students and parents meet individually with the college counselor to discuss and explore colleges and universities that offer the kinds of environments and programs the student is seeking. Sophomore and junior students and parents are also encouraged to participate in some of Trinity’s college trips.
The ultimate goal of the College Counseling Program is that by the beginning of the senior year, students will have narrowed their college lists and are ready to apply. The College Counseling Program provides constant support with each facet of the application process and provides letters for recommendation for students. It is critical for students to be well organized and prepared for the demands of the application process. Advanced planning and an early start are strongly recommended.
Each fall Trinity hosts a College Day, which is usually the third Tuesday in September. All students and parents from grades 9-12 are encouraged to attend. Students and parents will have the opportunity to meet with representatives of colleges and universities and to attend three different college presentations.
Trinity is fortunate to have representatives from colleges and universities visit the campus each year in addition to the College Day. Students and parents can check out the list of colleges who plan to visit Trinity at their Naviance account.
One of the most motivational tools in deciding on a college is for a student to visit a college campus. Trinity's College Day is the next best thing!
This year's College Day at Trinity is even bigger and better! You will not want to miss out on the extraordinary opportunities being offered. From deciding what college is right for you to exploring college majors, university professors and college admission directors will help you navigate through the many choices that are upon you.
This is an outstanding opportunity for both students and parents to have their questions answered by college admission counselors and discuss college admissions with the experts. Parents are highly encouraged to attend any of the scheduled events. Over 50 college representatives and professors will be on hand for Trinity's College Day. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, September 17, 2019.
