College Counseling

 

Maui Prep’s college counseling program encourages students to explore the opportunities for higher education that will best meet their personal and unique life goals. Under the guidance of an experienced college counselor, Maui Prep students identify personal talents and interests, and discover a range of colleges that match and engage those interests. Through this process, students gain important skills in self-reflection, critical thinking, communication and decision-making. 

  • All sophomores enroll in a fall semester course, College and Career Explorations.  The students begin to catalogue their interests and skills and develop a list of potential universities.  They also begin work on the Common App, a universal application site used at many universities across the country.
  • In the junior year, students and parents attend informational meetings in the fall regarding the importance of individual reflection and openness to exploring college options, as well as the necessary steps and procedures in the college admission process.
  • Each January, a formal College Evening event features guest speakers and discussion groups for both students and parents. During the spring, juniors meet with the college counselor in individual or small group settings to gain knowledge and tools for the college search process.
  • One-on-one appointments with the college counselor build the foundation for a strong advisory relationship that continues through senior year.
  • As students finalize and submit college applications, the college counselor prepares and sends supportive materials including a comprehensive school report and counselor recommendations.
  • Our expectation is that all Maui Prep graduates enroll in selective colleges and universities across the country and around the world.
