Whitefield Academy A Christ-Centered College Preparatory School

College Counseling

The Whitefield Academy College Counseling Office has developed a comprehensive and highly-individualized program centered on the core belief that God has gifted each student with certain interests, talents, and passions, and that He has a unique plan and purpose for his or her life.

As counselors and advisors, we come alongside our students to help them navigate all aspects of the college search process, with the ultimate goal of helping each student find a college or university where he or she will flourish.

The College Counseling program begins in the freshman year, with developmentally-appropriate guidance progressing through the senior year. Highlights of the program include:

  • Individualized academic coaching for rising 9th-12th grade students
  • Seminars for freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors
  • Extensive college application seminar for seniors
  • Signature Vocare program for juniors
  • Parent information sessions in every grade level
  • Navigating College Financial Aid night for parents
  • Over 70 colleges and universities visit campus each year
  • College visit offerings for rising juniors and seniors
  • Vocare Career Roundtables
  • College essay writing course offered each summer

Vocare - College and Career Coaching Program

A hallmark of the Upper School experience is our signature Vocare program, an extensive process through which junior students actively assess, explore, and evaluate their unique areas of giftedness PRIOR to navigating the senior year college application process. A dedicated counselor guides small groups of students through a comprehensive and highly personalized 10-week program where students take personality and aptitude assessments, define areas of interest, identify personal values, and establish meaningful goals. At the end of the process, students have the opportunity to connect their results to real-life careers through “Vocare Roundtables,” a month-long series where a diverse group of alumni and community professionals come to Whitefield and candidly share their own college and career experiences with small groups of juniors.

The entire program prepares and empowers students to seek college and career-related opportunities that are satisfying, fulfilling, and consistent with God’s calling for their lives.
