Woodward School College Counseling

The college preparation and application process is exciting, but must be thoughtfully approached and navigated. With over 3000 colleges and universities in the United States, and many other options abroad, the process of applying to college has become increasingly complex. At Woodward, we work closely with students and families to inform and assist through the college exploration, application, and selection process.

Beginning in Grade 9 Seminar, students are assisted to identify their strengths, talents, interests, and preferences for the type of college they would like to attend. They are informed about what lies ahead and familiarized with important resources to prepare strongly, and to move confidently through to the senior year application season.

Students are supported in college search strategies, resume writing, interview skills, college essay writing, completing the Common and individual applications and ultimately, the selection. Representatives from various colleges and universities visit Woodward each year, and the school offers annual financing and FAFSA information sessions to demystify the process for families.

If you have any questions about college counseling or would like to discuss our program, please call Jeffrey DeCristofaro at 617-773-5610 or email his at jdecristofaro@thewoodwardschool.org.
