You don't journey alone on the road to college. Whether you are studying for college entrance exams, taking finals, or writing college essays, your community of classmates, teachers, and counselors walk with you as you prepare.
Our High School counselors not only support our students through social, emotional, and academic counseling, they also use their experiences, professional networks, and expertise to help walk our students through the college and university application process and connect them to the universities that will best help them achieve their dreams.
We believe in supporting students to find the college or university that best matches their abilities, interests and ambitions. This requires consideration of the location, academics and the culture of potential schools.
I am very excited to be attending Rice University in Houston, Texas! A huge factor in my decision was physically being on campus and meeting people there. Rice just felt like home. The emphasis of “unconventional wisdom”, their motto, is something I really value about the school. Not to mention that Rice has an amazing engineering program, beautiful warm weather and a strong sense of community.
I was accepted Early Decision to the University of Pennsylvania. I applied for the Huntsman Program in International Studies and Business, a dual degree program between the Wharton School and the College of Arts and Science; this means that I will graduate with a BS in Economics and a BA in International Studies.
I am planning on attending Colorado School of Mines. When I started looking at what universities I wanted to apply to, I looked for schools that had a strong engineering program and had a competitive baseball team that I could be a part of. School of Mines fit both of these conditions perfectly.
I will be attending School of the Arts Institute Chicago. The main factors that led me to decide were the program and the location. I really liked how their program was set up in how it allowed for very well rounded education in arts which spread beyond just graphic design.
Since middle school Jonathan’s childhood dream is to become a car designer. Throughout his academic career at Concordia he was able to take fine arts and applied learning courses that helped him develop his skills and further his interest. He now on his way to pursue his life-long passion in designing cars at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
I am planning to attend RISD, Rhode Island School of Design. I chose this school because its program for industrial design is one of the best and that made me want to try and apply. Another reason to why I chose this school was because many Concordia Alumni have also applied and went. Yukine and Sarah, Concordia Alumni, have all said good things about it and I think that has had some influence on me.
I will be attending Northwestern University. I really loved the campus when I visited. Additionally, since I'm not completely set on a major, I love the interdisciplinary aspect of the curriculum, as well as the flexibility in course selection.
I am going to be attending Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. The campus is in a beautiful natural setting but it’s close to four larger cities, and it has strong relationships with global corporations, which I hope will benefit my career options.
I chose St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota because I was looking for a strong community, similar to the one I am a part of at Concordia, where I would have the opportunity to pursue a wide range of academic and artistic interests.
I decided to attend Rhode Island School of Design, because out of the many art schools, I felt that this school would allow me to further develop as an artist
I am planning to attend Yale University next year. A large factor in my decision to enroll at Yale is the fact that they have the top humanities program in the United States, which is my current major/career interest. Also, when I visited the campus last summer, the school just seemed to fit me.
I am attending Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. This choice was mostly influenced by the location. I have lots of family nearby and am very familiar with the school.
I chose the University of Edinburgh, Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies because of the top-notch, direct entry veterinary medicine program.
I am very excited to study computer science as part of Harvard's class of '22! The main reason I chose Harvard was because of the institution's awareness of the role of technology in the evolution and development of society.
I knew I wanted to attend a small liberal arts college where there is an abundance of resources and faculty support, just like Concordia’s small community and the accessible research & extracurricular opportunities. For that reason, I will be attending Wellesley College in the fall.
I decided to attend Queen Mary University of London’s Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry because of the direct-entry medicine program that incorporates clinical exposure from the first term.
By finding their "Best Fit" school, they are equipped to pursue their passions, grow and mature in their education, and one day achieve their dreams!
