The college search and application process can be challenging. But it’s also an opportunity to explore your interests, reflect on your values and find your own voice.
Your search is both external and internal. Yes, you’ll create a list of colleges that match your criteria. But to discover that list, you’ll first undertake an internal search: a quest to discover who you are, what’s special about you and what’s important to you. Through this educational journey, you’ll find a college that’s the right match for you, and put yourself on your
path to life after Menlo.
We’re here to help. We’ve created the College Counseling Handbook, a comprehensive “road map” of information, and
we’ll be your guides along the way. So get to know us, and help us get to know
All about finding the right "match"
That means you find the school that works for you: one that
matches your academic, social, size and location desires. It’s not necessarily
a college you know much about at the start of the process, and there may be
more than one right match. Your list of potential ‘homes’ for the next four
years will develop as you discover what’s important to you. And remember, the right match is right in both directions: both you and the college pick each other
At Menlo, everything we do puts students at the center of their own learning. You’re the driver—but you’ve got your counselor with you to help navigate the road. We’re very good at helping you discover what’s special about you
An extension of Menlo's educational philosophy
Throughout your years at Menlo, you’ve practiced self-advocacy, introspection and self-expression. You’ve been learning the skills you need to succeed in college, and in life. The college search process is no different—the skills you’ll learn while on this path will help you continue your educational journey once in college
Built around supportive, individualized counseling
With over 55 combined years of experience in the field, we’ve got plenty of resources and know a lot about the wide range of colleges out there. We’ll meet with you often, and the best way we can help you is to get to know you. So come say hi!
We look forward to working with you!
