The College Counseling Process
Virtually all Oakwood students proceed to college as a natural extension of their studies. The school provides a comprehensive college counseling program. Beginning in 9th grade students are advised about the effects of curricular choices on college options. In 10th grade, students are administered a practice PSAT. In the 11th and 12th grades, students and parents meet with college counseling staff to discuss various aspects of the college selection process. Oakwood parents participate fully in this process, both formally and informally, from beginning to end.
How well a college will match an individual student's needs is a key part of the search process. Through a series of questionnaires and meetings, the college counselors guide each senior in choosing a list of potential colleges that emphasizes college "fit" over rank. The list below includes the colleges selected by Oakwood graduates over the past four years.
