College Advising at Woodlawn: An Overview
College guidance at Woodlawn School includes both informational workshops and individual sessions with students and families. Individual sessions begin in the junior year and continue until the process is completed during the senior year. Each student's path to college is unique, therefore individual time is key to guiding families toward the best result. A major goal of college guidance is to reduce family anxiety during this process by providing the best information and resources available. Woodlawn's college guidance services include the use of the Naviance online college and career readiness platform, which helps connect our students' academic achievement to their post-secondary goals.
As a result of our individualized college guidance program, Woodlawn students have been accepted at many of the most selective colleges and universities in the nation (see the full acceptance list here). You can currently find Woodlawn graduates at national universities such as Princeton, Yale, Rice, and NYU, and also at national liberal arts colleges like Williams, Middlebury, Carleton, and Bowdoin.
