College Guidance

Dear Parents

Our dedicated College Guidance Office is committed to matching each Trevor student with his or her optimal college or university. We are advocates and facilitators each step of the way. We provide comprehensive preparation and support—based on deep knowledge of the students, years of collaborating with colleges and universities, and a strong record of matching students with the right institutions.

We begin by introducing families to an overview of the entire college process—from application to acceptance—during sophomore year. Our intensive work with students and families kicks into full gear during junior and senior years, when we offer class-wide workshops and family conferences for each student. We also meet with students in small groups once a cycle to work on applications; collaboratively, we help them prepare for college interviews.

A key aspect of the college guidance journey is the relationship we cultivate with our students. Each and every student at Trevor is a unique individual with distinct goals and aspirations. Our teachers, advisors, and the entire College Guidance Office form strong, personal relationships with each student. We know your child and value their instincts and opinions. As in all else at Trevor, we put the student at the center, for they are the true engine for an effective and authentic process.

Trevor students have choices among our nation’s top colleges and universities. More importantly, they excel when they get there. Some graduates attend Ivy League schools, while others head to large state universities, small liberal arts colleges, or schools of art, design, or music. The diversity in selected schools reflects our dynamic student body.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any and all questions. Our doors are always open to you.

College Guidance Resources

Trevor hosts a College Guidance site on the Portal which offers students and their families a comprehensive overview of the college application process. The site includes timely bulletins, articles, a list of college search engines, information about financial aid, writing essays, and college visits, and many other requirements and strategies for getting into a college of choice. It also links to TCCi Family Connection from Naviance, a site that allows the College Guidance office to collaborate with students and families throughout the college application and decision-making process.
