College Counseling

MBA's Office of College Planning assists all High School families, preparing students for admission to and successful performance in colleges and universities across the United States.
Beginning with a preview of the College Planning process for sophomores and their parents, MBA offers a comprehensive college planning sequence of academic-day programs and evening talks and workshops to inform the community and to help students assess interests, identify appropriate colleges and universities, research options, apply effectively, and prepare to make the transition to college life.

The Director of College Counseling and Associate Directors meet individually with juniors, seniors, and parents to answer questions, offer suggestions, and tailor each college search to individual needs and circumstances.

Students draw on resources including frequent visits by college representatives; a library of college catalogs and informational materials; internet resources; guides to college selection, scholarships, financial aid, standardized testing, and athletics; and computerized college search and test preparation programs.
