College Counseling

All Forman students get into four-year colleges and universities.

Our college counseling philosophy is personal. 

There’s no one path to finding success in our fast-changing world—it’s unique to every graduate. Our college counselors take a hyper-individualized approach, working closely with students to find the best fit for their learning profile, strengths, and lifelong dreams. We’ll help you build thoughtful, researched, and realistic criteria to assess colleges and universities—and the courage to chase what really matters to you.

“College prep helped me make the most of my college decisions. The faculty helped me grasp the pros and cons for each college, from the small things like weather and transportation accessibility, to how rigorously academic it was.”
Sam Seo Forman graduate

A rigorous process, embedded in care

Forman’s comprehensive college prep program—complete with immersive classes, one-on-one counseling, campus visits, and summer workshops—not only produces 100% year-on-year college placement, but emboldens you to thrive there. Our College Counseling Office is open all summer and hosts workshops throughout the break. College counselors live on campus, coach, and work night and weekend duties, helping them to find more thoughtful, tailored opportunities.

Post secondary planning courses

Post-secondary planning courses are a graduation requirement. You’ll learn how to navigate college websites, analyze majors and colleges, and track the likelihood of admission to schools on your list. College essays are a focus—brainstorming, writing, and editing a working draft—as is the end-to-end application process, improving your time management, self-advocacy, and organizational abilities.

Track colleges with Naviance tech

Forman’s college counseling team uses Naviance, the latest technology available to enhance the search for colleges and help students align their strengths and interests with goals for college.

Each student is assigned an account to access this important tool. Current students may access their accounts by contacting the College Counseling Office at college.counseling@formanschool.org.

SmartTrack - A College Funding Tool

The SMARTTRACK® College Funding High School Initiative provides our families with free resources to help you plan ahead and pay less for college.

Individual conferences

Starting in January of junior year, we engage students in both group and individual conferences. One-on-one work helps students gain a clearer understanding of their personal goals for college and encourages them to engage actively with the application process.
