The college counseling staff believes that the college search and selection process is an educational process and the natural culmination of a student's years at Newman. We believe, too, that each individual student’s path in this process will be unique and that the student will lead in this meaningful time of self-exploration. We are here as allies and advocates, and we will endeavor to offer appropriate support throughout. We believe that students, with guidance and encouragement from the counselors, get themselves into college. We believe that the process is an important period of self-reflection and self-direction. While we are here to advise throughout, success in the process is a function of the student's investment and choices.
