The MSSM college counseling process strives to make something that can be incredibly confusing and overwhelming as user-friendly as possible.
At MSSM, the College Counselor focuses on helping students prepare for life after MSSM. This includes assisting students in their efforts to research, apply, and pay for the colleges of their choice.
The Maine School of Science and Mathematics College Counseling Office strives to:
Know and care for each student;
Guide students to discover colleges that reflect their interests and aspirations;
Work with students to present their strengths in the best light possible;
Offer expert counseling to students and their families throughout the college admissions process.
MSSM's College Counseling stands out due to the personalized attention each student receives. Even though our senior class is already small, less than 30 students, it is further divided into smaller sections. This allows us to have even more individualized sessions, including one-on-one meetings. What's more, beyond the dedicated college counselors, other teachers willingly assist with tasks like reading essays or sharing their own college experiences. For instance, a teacher who graduated from a college I'm considering offered invaluable insights into the application process and shared his personal experiences at that institution. It's an incredibly supportive environment for navigating college decisions."
