The College Office strives to expand students’ knowledge and horizons in the context of a highly individualized counseling process. The ultimate goal of the office is to foster students’ academic, intellectual and personal growth while empowering them to take ownership of the college process and their futures.
The college search and selection process is an integral part of the student experience at Porter's, and college advisors at Porter’s serve multiple roles. First, they are a resource for the information and advice students and their families need to understand and navigate the increasingly complex college admission process. Second, they 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, they are enthusiastic advocates for students and Porter’s, and aim to provide a constant source of encouragement and support as students prepare for the next exciting phase in their academic careers.
