OVS College Counseling provides guidance to students navigating the complex landscape of college admissions, starting in the freshman year and through graduation.
Our goal is to walk alongside students and their families to provide guidance in the decision making that takes place at every step in the process. We help them build their college lists, seek financial aid, prepare for the SAT and ACT, and provide feedback as they write persuasive and personal application essays that reflect who they are as students and individuals.
College admission and selection can be a successful and rewarding endeavor with the teamwork of student, parent, and college counselor. It is a pursuit that engages the heart and mind with hope and anticipation — and a healthy dose of good humor.
Graduates currently attend a diverse cross-section of colleges, including Brown, Columbia, NYU, California College of the Arts, Boston University, Colorado State, the Rochester Institute of Technology, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Barbara, UC Irvine, UC Riverside, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and many more. Many seniors were selected based on early decision applications. As individuals, they selected schools that supported their interests and passions, reflecting our goals for helping them select the “right fit” universities.
