College Counseling at Darrow
The role of College Counseling at Darrow is to push students to think creatively about what college is and what it should be. These are big, important questions but the process of answering them can be fun and exciting.
We work with each student (and parents) to define a selection list that fits his or her goals, talents, and interests.
We knowing their personalities, learning strengths, and the type of environment in which they will thrive and succeed. We are at the student’s side throughout the process, acting as advocate, resource, and adviser.
In the end, the college search is about finding a place where you can continue to learn, grow, and expand upon the person you have become at Darrow. Our College Counseling service will help you find that place, apply, be accepted, and make it a reality.
