College Counseling

College pennants hang in the College Counseling room

The college search and application process can be intimidating. Our college counseling team is here to support our students and families throughout the entire journey. 

Our team helps families by:

  • Offering practical assistance—including discovery, testing, and applications.
  • Helping families apply for need-based financial aid.
  • Directing students towards merit-based scholarships.
  • Guiding each student toward a program of study that aligns with their strengths, interests, and goals.
  • Instead of focusing on prestige, ranking, or exclusivity, our college counselors emphasize finding the right fit for each student.

While Bosque School families are introduced to concepts about college early in the upper school years, the formal college entrance preparation begins in the junior year. Students have a weekly college seminar with a counselor, covering everything from applications to entrance essays.

Each year, more than 100 college and university representatives visit Bosque School's campus to meet with our juniors and seniors.

The College Counseling Process

Naviance is a web-based technology program that will be used by the college counseling department to help manage the college search and admissions process. Family Connection is the website that students and families will use to access and share information with their counselors as they develop their post-secondary plans.

Using Family Connection, students can research careers & colleges, take assessments & surveys, create goals & to-do’s, and eventually, submit requests for transcripts & recommendations directly to their counselor.

College Reps: Learn How You Can Schedule a Visit With Our Students

Bosque School welcomes college reps to visit our students and campus. Please use RepVisits to schedule your 30-minute visit during the school day. If you have any issues, please reach out to Amy Lucero, College Counselor & Registrar. 

Visitor parking is available at the main entrance, near the student drop-off and flagpole. The college counseling office is located in the Schoolhouse. The entrance to the Schoolhouse is next to the flag pole. Once you enter the Schoolhouse, please check in at the front desk. We look forward to seeing you on campus.
