The overall ethos at Sonoma Academy is very much oriented towards academic and personal growth and evolution. Our college counseling program reflects those same values as our counselors guide students through a four-year curriculum of self-discovery and project planning. This curriculum includes course planning, standardized testing preparation, college research, application tools, and personal statement preparation. Students meet individually and in groups with their college counselor several times in increasing frequency as they approach the completion of their applications.
Our College Counselors help students build a unique list of schools that match the student’s interests, passions, and strengths, as well as the quality of life they seek at college. By developing one-on-one relationships with all of our students and working with families, we are better able to advise them on appropriate college matches and to advocate for them to admissions offices. What’s most important is that students have a variety of options and the knowledge of self to choose the school that is right for them.
