At Winchendon学校, college counseling takes a different approach, 因为"进入"只是个开始.
We work with students to find the college or university where students will succeed best for their entire experience. 因为冰球突破官网有个性化的方法, we work with students for two years on understanding what type of school will best fit their needs—their style, 他们的目标, 他们的动机, 和自己的长处.
Then we help identify the best mutual match: we’ll guide your student to the school your student wants, 以及需要他们的学校. 例如, it might be a large school where they’re going to play D1 sports, 或者是有特殊艺术项目的小型学校, 主修或职前课程. Our goal is to find the place your student will flourish in the same way they do here.
