About College Counseling at Webb
The College Counseling Office at The Webb School understands its primary role within the community as guiding our students toward a college that is a good fit. The College Counseling Office strives to maintain an atmosphere free from prejudice, favoritism, or predisposition in regards to what college students are investigating. Therefore, while faculty and counselors will offer insight, suggestions and, perhaps, some personal opinions gleaned from their time in college, our main goal is to help students find a place where they will find both success and happiness after leaving the Webb community.
In regards to the process itself, the Office of College Counseling realizes that the fundamental responsibility in choosing a college is up to the students. For it is the students themselves who must write the essay, sit for standardized examinations, ask for teacher and counselor recommendations, fill out the application material, and ultimately leave for college. The counseling office does, however, pledge to support our students in myriad ways to insure their highest academic, athletic, and personal potential so that they can take full advantage of their college experience. With this in mind, the counseling office remains a place for students to browse their Naviance account, look over college materials, web search particular colleges, discuss pertinent issues (be they personal or academic in nature), or simply relax in a supportive environment.
Quite possibly the most helpful tool for parents, students, and counselors in supporting and challenging students as we begin this journey is good information. I encourage you to explore the links to frequented, and helpful, websites on the right of this page.
