The College Counseling Office helps to ensure that 100 percent of Trinity Prep graduates continue their education at colleges around the country. Our primary criterion for guiding students through the maze of college choices is how well the school “fits” their unique goals. Trinity Prep employs three full-time college counselors to assist our students and their families.
Upper School and Grade-Level Programs
- College Night is a school-wide program in the fall for parents and students of all grades, exploring early issues of college search, admission, and financial aid. Grade-level-focused programs include large group, small group, and one-on-one counseling sessions. The programming involves discussions of academics, extracurricular involvement, and leadership, as well as research into specific colleges.
- Juniors and seniors learn about colleges, meet with college admission counselors on campus, and attend the annual Central Florida College Fair and other Orlando-area college meetings.
- We help students and families navigate College Board and ACT tests, working with the guidance office to identify and coordinate testing for students with special accommodations.
- We take a team approach to the college research and admissions process, with students, parents, teachers, and the college counselors each playing an important role. Parents are included in one-on-one meetings, events, regular emails, and handouts.
The College Counseling Office clearly identified tasks and deadlines, provided a vast array of resources, and served as trusted, thoughtful advisers as we faced the complex and ever-changing college application process."
