Annapolis’ College Advising Program focuses on building relationships with our students to help them and their families discern the wisest choices to make regarding life after high school. 96% of our alumni have continued their educations at two or four year colleges or universities, and 4% of alumni have entered military service immediately after high school.
- Grade 9: Freshman learn how to build a strong GPA, what details to record about their extracurricular activities, why elective choices are important, and when they should take college admissions tests.
- Grade 10: Sophomores receive guidance in applying to academic camps and internships, practice taking standardized tests, and lists of colleges to research or visit based on their personal interests.
- Grade 11: Juniors take Annapolis’ signature College Preparedness class in which they practice college admissions testing, create a portfolio of college application essays, and research colleges of interest to them.
- Grade 12: Seniors work one-on-one with guidance staff to submit college and scholarship applications, review financial aid offers, and decide what to do following graduation.
- Graduates: Alumni request transcripts and records from the guidance office, receive information about scholarship opportunities, and return to Annapolis to tutor and mentor current students.
