College Guidance

At Falmouth Academy, college counseling grows from our relationships with students and families.  Our college advisors have taught English and history and have been advising our students for more than 25 years. Because we know our students and families so well, we are able to help them as they embark on the sometimes mysterious and oftentimes stressful process of applying to college.  

 Our goal is to provide parents and students with the resources for the college search process and to ensure that students make their decisions based on individual needs and appropriate fit. Every student is unique, and so the colleges they choose to attend should match their individual abilities, interests and aspirations.  Our process places student reflection and self-awareness at its center, rather than institutional name recognition and rankings.

Our students learn to utilize Naviance, a comprehensive, online database, for their college search. Each junior and senior also has the opportunity to meet with numerous college representatives who visit Falmouth Academy.

In addition to their strong academic preparation, our students’ experience as part of a community marked by trust, respect, and acceptance makes them invaluable members of their future college communities.
