The Storm King School takes great pride in the amount of individual attention each student receives when planning for life after secondary school. The primary objective is to assist each student with the selection and application to the most appropriate college or university that matches their preparation, talents, and potential.
College guidance begins in the freshman and sophomore years with preparation for the PSAT exam and continues until spring of senior year. We encourage parents to be very active participants throughout this extended process. During winter and spring break of the junior year, we advise parents and students to begin planning and attending college open houses and visiting college campuses.
Throughout the summer before senior year, we strongly recommend that students personally visit colleges and universities, requesting formal interviews as available.
Along with taking the ACT/SAT (and TOEFL for our international students), the fall of senior year is the time for thoughtful discussion between students and their advisors regarding the college process. Parents often join their son or daughter for conversations with the college counselor.
The Storm King School hosts college admissions representatives on our campus, schedules visits to local college campuses, and attends a variety of college fairs during the fall.
Recently, a group of graduating seniors was interviewed in regards to their experiences at Storm King and future plans beyond our school. Read the interview here.
