College Counseling

Four new graduates pose in their graduation gowns and honor cords

One-hundred percent of Altamont graduates go on to colleges and universities throughout the nation and world!

To achieve that success, The College Counseling Office guides college searches based on three principles:

Financial Fit

Can I pay for it? Parents identify the amount of money they are able and willing to pay for college and set a budget for their student. Parents use net price calculators, the Federal Student Aid Estimator and other online tools to help determine cost of attendance.

Academic Fit

Do they have my course of study? Will I be admitted? College Counseling identifies colleges with majors matching a student’s expressed academic interest and makes sure students are applying to a balanced list of schools (reach, target, safety).

Social Fit

Will I be happy here? Students do online research, virtual and/or campus visits to determine if the school is a good fit for them personally.
