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.
