College Counseling Philosophy
We believe 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 it is the student's journey to undertake and lead. We are here as allies and advocates, and we will endeavor to offer appropriate help throughout. We promote the idea that students get themselves into college. We believe that the process is not a game or a series of hoops to jump through; rather, it is an important period of self-reflection and self-direction. Therefore, as with the rest of the student's education, success in the process will be a function of the student's investment and choices. Proactive and thoughtful effort will ensure a successful journey.
