All students meet with our experienced Director of College Counseling throughout all four of their years at The Academy at Penguin Hall. They receive individualized advice on course progression and extracurricular involvement, as well as opportunities to engage in meaningful activities that further their understanding of themselves as learners. This process underscores our efforts to help students find colleges and universities that are the best match for their interests and abilities, and to prepare them for showcasing themselves in the application process.
Throughout each year, college admission officers from around the country visit the APH campus to meet with juniors and seniors and provide information about their schools. In addition, our Director of College Counseling visits college campuses and attends college admission events in order to stay abreast of current trends in college admissions.
