College Counseling

Navigating the College Admissions Process

While the value of a St. Christopher's education extends far beyond preparation for admission to college, college is the natural next step for St. Christopher's graduates. 

The college search should be an exciting process, an opportunity to think about who you are and to make decisions about your future. The St. Christopher's College Counseling Office works individually with each student and family to understand a process that can seem mysterious and stressful, develop a list of appropriate options, and advise on all phases of the admissions process.

The College Search Process

List of 3 items.

  • Self-Evaluation. What do you want?

    Choosing a college is about finding the right fit. The first step is knowing what you want.
  • Research. What is available?

    Research involves a combination of information and gut feel, and both are important. Armed with information, "comparison shopping" becomes a way to narrow down your choices, comparing the subtle differences in school culture and personality.
  • Application. How do I articulate who I am?

    Colleges can only make decisions based on the information you provide. It is important to tell them what they need to know about you so they can evaluate you fairly.
