College/University Guidance

Pathways to Success:
Navigating Your Future with ASM's Expert Guidance

The goal of ASM’s university counseling office is to help our students identify the appropriate “fit” for all post-secondary options. “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 university counselor will guide the students toward autonomy and emphasize the following important aspects of the admissions 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 University Counselors present information periodically throughout the year at ASM. Beginning in the spring of the junior year or by request, the counselors offer customized university consultation for students and their families; the individualized counseling relationship continues through the end of the application, graduation, and new enrollment process. Working together, students, parents, and counselors generate recommendations for prospective universities. Furthermore, in a series of University Preparation lessons, the counselors advise the students about a strategy for the process, including psychometric testing, career and university research, required test-taking, college visits, essay writing, presenting oneself in a CV and interview, and an overall timeline for the process.

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 admissions mailings, and admissions interviews may also be arranged.
