This is one of the first significant life decisions students will make and own for themselves, and we want our students to consider their values, 激情, 兴趣和需要. 以此为基础, they will research colleges and universities that meet their individual criteria, and evaluate how their credentials will position them for admission at each institution.
We welcome freshmen and their families at any time with questions. Each Nichols student will meet individually with a college counselor in the spring of sophomore year, a meeting during which a relationship will be established, and the counselor will begin to know 学生和他们的家人 while offering thoughts on academic and broader goals.
从他们大三开始, students learn to take ownership of their search, 为他们的需要辩护, to master the many details and pieces of the complex college process and to place it in a broader context of their lives. 在我们看来, the most important and thoughtful process is with the student driving and the College Center and family right there in support. 这对每个学生来说都是最好的结果.
除了定期的个别会议之外, 演讲嘉宾, 传统的印刷, 社交媒体和互联网资源, the College Center utilizes web-based technology from Naviance. Naviance 创建s an open and transparent link between the college office, 学生和他们的家人, powered by the most comprehensive and practical database available for college research. Each student will receive a Naviance account in the spring of sophomore year.
Nichols seniors and juniors also benefit from having over 150 college and university admission representatives visit campus during the fall application cycle each year. This gives each student another opportunity to advocate for themselves.
Nichols’ student-to-counselor ratio is the best of all schools in Western New York, 我们细心地为你提供一个亲密的, long-term process of introspection and research to all our students as they prepare for the next step in their educational journey. The Nichols College Center is committed to providing a deeply enriching, student-centered experience in line with our school’s mission.
