We believe that the college search and selection process is an integral part of our students’ experience at Porter's. We view ourselves as educators, and we seek to expand our students’ knowledge and horizons in the context of a highly individualized counseling process.
College advisors at Porter’s serve multiple roles. First, we are a resource for the information and advice students and their families need to understand and navigate the increasingly complex college admission process. Second, we serve as a link to the college community, working closely with college admission officers to help them interpret our students’ experiences and accomplishments in the context of Porter's rigorous academic program and rich extracurricular life. Finally, and most importantly, we are enthusiastic advocates for our students and our school, and strive to provide a constant source of encouragement and support as our students prepare for the next exciting phase in their academic career.
Our ultimate goal is to foster our students’ academic, intellectual and personal growth and to empower them to take ownership of the college process and their futures.
