Welcome to the College Prep Counseling Department
Upon entering Devon Prep, many students are continuing to develop personal motivation to succeed so they may go to the college of their choice. Our curriculum is structured, yet also offers extensive elective offerings, so that every graduate will meet course requirements at colleges and universities throughout the United States. The College Counseling Program has enjoyed considerable success. 100% of our graduates continue their education at an institution of higher level learning.
Although College Counseling is available to all students, regardless of grade, the formal program begins early in the junior year of the Upper School, when the Director of College Counseling hosts an information session for students and parents on the college selection process, standardized testing programs, and the application process. At this session, families receive our college guidance manual, designed to help the student to select the right college in a timely manner. From Junior year through early Senior year of the Upper School, students will meet once per cycle in “College Counseling Seminar” classes, personal 1×1 appointments with the student and family in which the Director of College Counseling helps the student and family to explore his interests and options. College is an investment in his future and we are all stakeholders with his success.
Every fall, Devon Prep is visited by admissions representatives from colleges and universities from around the country. Admissions representatives will meet with interested juniors and seniors to promote their institution and answer questions about their campus and admission processes.
The fall college visit calendar is available to students and parents on Naviance, posted in the College Guidance Center (Calasanctius Hall, room 4) and day-by-day on the Schoology calendar.
College representatives may request their visit through www.RepVisits.com or contact Mrs. Eshleman directly 610-688-7337 X172. These representatives will meet with interested juniors and seniors to promote their institution and answer questions about their campus and admission processes. Students interested in participating in these college visits will need to follow the posted guidelines.
