College Counseling

Compass Montessori’s advisors and the Program Director work closely with students in their senior year as they make their way through the labyrinth of the college application process. Seniors are required to participate in Senior Seminar all year, the program which ultimately finalizes their portfolios for graduation. They must also participate in a  self-designed  Senior Practicum in the spring to practice their transition into university-level classes.

 

We require our students to apply to at least three universities to ensure they have a wide range of choices. Over the past five years, 96% of students graduating from Compass continue their education at the college level. 98% of graduating students have been accepted into their first-choice colleges. A list of university and college acceptances follows:
