Since the first graduating class in 2001, the college counseling office at Bosque School guided our alumni through the college discovery, testing, application, interview and acceptance processes. Bosque students have been accepted to some of the most selective institutions in the United States and abroad. College advisement encourages students to find the right “match,” and our students have, at times, turned down the most selective schools in order to attend an institution that better suits their needs and interests.
College counseling at Bosque School is intimate, informative and individualized. The mission of the department is to assist both students and parents with identifying suitable schools, taking the appropriate standardized tests, essay writing, and applying for need-based financial aid and merit scholarships. Students work closely with their teachers and college counselor to plan a strong program of study commensurate with their ability, interests and future plans. All Bosque graduates enroll in four-year colleges and universities. Through their academic and extra-curricular achievements, our graduating classes are receiving over $1 million in merit scholarships each year, averaging approximately $22,000
Formal, structured preparation for the college search takes place in a student’s junior and senior year. Students are required to attend weekly college seminar meetings with their college counselor in order to learn about the application process, research institutions, write college essays, and remain organized throughout the application process. Our faculty, students and parents work together throughout a student’s career at Bosque to insure each student is prepared for life after Bosque.
Junior Ambassador Program
The Junior Ambassador Program enables visitors to meet our students and discover what student life is really like here—and our students are vital to increasing the awareness of Bosque School to colleges and universities nationwide. A key component of being a Junior Ambassador is the central role they play in welcoming college and university representatives to our campus. Junior Ambassadors possess a keen desire to contribute to the life of Bosque. They have the power to make a positive and lasting difference in the Bosque community, while acquiring skills that often prove invaluable in their later lives. Presentation, networking, teamwork, time management, public speaking, and resume-building are all key skills students learn as part of their Bosque education that also form the basis for the ambassador role. If you are interested in taking part in this outstanding leadership opportunity, please come by the College Counseling office.
