College/University Guidance

The goal of ASM’s college counseling office is to help our students identify the appropriate "fit" for all post-secondary options. College “Fit” is defined as finding an institution that meets the academic, emotional, geographical and financial needs of the student.  This improves a student’s likelihood of graduation from  a chosen college, as well as ultimate success in their chosen field of work.

The college counselor will guide the students towards autonomy and emphasize the following important aspects of the college admission process:        

  • Attention to detail and organization (Helping students gain control of applications and deadlines)
  • Self-Knowledge (Helping students to discover and articulate their strengths)
  • Education (Helping students to research all academic programs)

The ASM College Counselor offers direction on the college search, utilizing internet resources, college essay writing, SAT testing, managing application timelines, and other relevant topics.

Additionally throughout the year, Admissions Representatives from universities around the world travel to ASM to meet students. The purpose of their visits is to speak with students about particular colleges and to answer questions about the application process. At this time, students may sign up to receive college admissions mailings, and admissions interviews may also be arranged.

The College Counselors present informational evenings periodically throughout the year at ASM, at which students of any grade level and their families are welcome to attend. Beginning in the spring of the junior year or by request, the College Counselors offer customized university consultation for students and their families; the individualized counseling relationship continues through to the end of the application process. Working together, students, parents and Counselors generate recommendations for prospective universities. The College Counselor also advises the student about a strategy for the process, including required test-taking, college visits, essay writing and presenting oneself, and an overall timeline for the process.

As seniors prepare for their IB exams, we have started to hear back from Universities regarding college acceptances.  Thus far, we have received conditional offers from UK universities including, the University of Birmingham, the University of Aberdeen, Kings College London, and the University of Brighton (just to name a few!)   We have heard back from some universities in the US and are still waiting to hear back from others.  To date, students have been accepted to Northeastern, New York University, Villanova, Emerson, University of California-Santa Barbara and Brandeis.

Summer is just around the corner and students and faculty have been working hard to conclude another great school year. Seniors are enjoying their final days here at ASM working hard towards securing future plans and finalizing the details to begin a new chapter in their lives.

Juniors are involved in preparations for their senior year. They are learning about the college application process and attending college planning courses during their lunch hour.
