College Counseling

Choosing a college is not a singular event for students, but rather part of an ongoing process of self-awareness and self-exploration. At Trinity Valley School, our highly experienced college counselors are dedicated to educating and guiding families through this pivotal phase of each student’s academic journey. Collaboratively, they prepare our students for the rigors of an ever-changing and competitive college search and application process through a variety of programs offered throughout the year.

While our college counselors are easily accessible to all upper school students, they begin working with students in earnest in the winter of the junior year. Our college counselors are committed to learning about each student’s unique talents, interests, passions, and skills, which helps to prepare the student and family for a competitive college application process.

Our college counselors remain updated on national and global admission trends. In addition to welcoming more than 100 college representatives from around the world to our campus each year, they continue to establish and maintain relationships with college/university deans, directors, and admission representatives through various college fairs, campus visits, and regional and national conferences. They are also active members of several admissions and college counseling-related associations including the Association of College Counselors in Independent Schools, the National Association for College Admission Counseling, and the Texas Association for College Admission Counseling.
