College Counseling

100% College Acceptance

College counseling at Westminster is a partnership that brings students, parents and our college counseling office together for the support and encouragement of our students as they invest their efforts in college planning.

Through the college search and admissions process, we strive to:

  1. Assist students in making appropriate college choices
  2. Foster student initiative, independence, and self-understanding
  3. Strengthen decision-making and goal setting skills

Our primary objective is to address each student's individual college needs and ensure that Westminster students are active, energetic, and investigative participants in the process.

Resources

We are dedicated to helping guide every Wildcat through the college selection and application process. Please see the below resources for information on applications, school visits and financial aid. 
 
Applications
Most schools will look at GPA, transcript (grades and course load), and standardized test scores. Supplemental materials may include: resume, recommendation letters, essay and/or short answer questions. Each school requests different materials, so check with each individually to ensure that everything needed is included. 
 
School Visits
Juniors are allowed to miss one academic day per semester of their choosing with no academic penalty to visit a college campus. Seniors will be allowed to miss two academic days per semester. Students need to fill out and submit a special absence form a week before their chosen day. Please plan accordingly. We highly encourage students and their families to plan college visits for long weekends and holidays. Check the school-wide calendar for specific dates. Planning ahead is one of the keys to success in this process. Get these visits on the calendar as soon as possible. 

Standardized Testing
All Freshman, Sophomores and Juniors will take the PSAT at school in October. Juniors and Seniors should plan to take the ACT and SAT by registering online - SAT www.CollegeBoard.com and ACT www.ACT.org. Visit the website for practice materials and test day tips.
