The Guidance Department seeks to give all students the full and continuing opportunity to reach their potential. The optimal development of each student is the primary and central goal of the department. In working toward this goal, the department offers a wide range of services including academic, career, college and personal counseling. All guidance programs are based on the values of self-understanding, self-acceptance, informed decision-making and responsible, productive behavior.

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING

The goal of educational counseling is to give each student every opportunity to succeed academically. Students may initiate these sessions, they may be initiated by the student’s counselor, or they may be referred by a teacher, parents, or other school personnel. Educational counseling may focus on the student’s performance in school, as well as advisement in the course selection process. Students who have multiple academic failures are seen by the counselor in an effort to improve the student’s academic performance.

TUTORING

If you are interested in volunteering as a peer tutor – Please pick up an application form in W-101. If you were a tutor last year, you do not need to get teacher recommendations again. But, if you are a new member, please ask just one teacher from each subject area (you select to tutor) to sign the application, which will indicate that they recommend you to be a tutor.

If you are a student in need of a tutor – Please go to W-101 and see Mrs. Logan or Mrs. Williams. Within a few days, you will be contacted and introduced to a tutor after cor. At that point, a scheduled time and location will be established. Each level has designated “sign” books to keep track of the meetings.

It’s a program that works well when both parties are committed to the scheduled appointment times to meet and use this time efficiently.

Personal Counseling

The Guidance Department offers personal counseling in order to help students with self-understanding, self-acceptance and personal adjustment.School is one important part of a student's life, but cannot be separated from the student's personal life, and there are many occasions when it is important to speak with a counselor about personal concerns.Students may see their assigned level counselor.

Appointment sheets are available in the Guidance Office: W-101.

The Guidance Department conducts various small groups. These groups usually meet during the school day – some meeting for a pre-defined number of sessions, some running indefinitely. A student’s membership in a group is voluntary and confidential. While all of these groups are offered each year, only those with a sufficient enrollment will run. If you are interested in joining one of these groups, or need additional information, make an appointment in W-101 or see your counselor.

BEREAVEMENT GROUP

For those who are upset after the death of a loved one and are ready to share their feelings with others.

LIVING WITH AN ALCOHOLIC AND/OR ADDICT

For those who are upset about the drug and/or alcohol use of a loved one with whom they are living.

SEXUAL IDENTITY GROUP

For gay and lesbian students and those who think they may be, to explore issues of concern such as health, discrimination, family, etc.

DIVORCE AND SEPARATION GROUP

For those students who wish to discuss the particular pressures and problems resulting from divorce or separation and/or the challenges of step-family life.

ILLNESS AT HOME GROUP

For those who are living with someone at home who is seriously ill.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SUPPORT GROUP

NOVEMBER 2 - CUNY APPLICATION RECOMMENDED DEADLINE




 COLLEGE INFORMATION NIGHT FOR JUNIORS


Below are some of the highlights regarding COLLEGE DECISION MAKING:

* Make a list of the colleges in which you are interested.

* Log onto these college websites to gather some important information: majors offered, programs available, location, cost, a general profile of GPA and SAT scores of admitted students, application deadlines, if SAT II tests are required, etc.

* Most college applications require an essay. Check websites to see if topics are given. If not, a personal statement is accepted by many schools. This can include a personal experience that has been an influence in your life. The summer is a perfect time to begin to write rough drafts so that you have a head start on the process. Seniors: When you return to school in September, you can ask an English teacher to review the essay, or visit the writing center for help(appointments available through the English Department). Do this early, as they will get many requests, and you need to be respectful of their time.

* Visit Colleges. Fall and Spring are good times to attend "open house" at colleges. Most colleges will give tours during the summer, and even speak with students and parents. It will give you some idea of the campus and facilities, traveling time, surrounding environment, etc.

* SAT: JUNIOR STUDENTS TAKE the SAT in the spring. Once you receive those scores we suggest spending time over the summer preparing for the fall SAT. Focus on the area(s) where your performance was weak. SENIOR STUDENTS WILL TAKE THE SAT (again) IN THE FALL.

*SENIORS: It is very strongly suggested that you register on-line for the October or November SAT exam during the summer approaching senior year.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2017


**************************************




Exciting news for your rising senior girls! They may now apply for a travel grant to attend Discover Wellesley Weekend on Sunday, October 15, and Monday, October 16.
 
Who is it for?
Wellesley encourages applicants from underrepresented cultural backgrounds such as African American, Asian American, Hispanic/Latina American, Native American; first-generation students; and/or students from other underrepresented communities. The travel grant selection committee will also prioritize inviting students from families with limited financial resources, regardless of cultural or racial background. The above-mentioned are priorities, but are not meant to imply any exclusivity regarding the program or the selection process
What’s free?
Transportation, meals, and housing. Family members are welcome to attend Discover Wellesley Weekend, but the grant only covers travel for the student
How do students apply?
The priority application deadline is June 30; the final deadline is August 15.
1. For details on how to apply: www.wellesley.edu/admission/falltravelgrant.
2. Students are encouraged to report SAT or ACT test scores and must submit a copy of their unofficial transcript (grades 9-11) and a statement of purpose along with their application.
As a counselor, what can you do?
Please pass this information to any rising senior you think is a good fit for Wellesley and may need financial assistance to attend Discover Wellesley Weekend. We are looking for engaging, bright, and academically driven women who are interested in discovering Wellesley’s diverse and inclusive community. We give preference to students who have not yet visited. Last year, we received nearly 600 applications for a total of 100 available grants, and we hope to offer as many grants this fall. We try to distribute the funds to get a diverse geographic mix of students.

You are welcome to email me with the names of your students who will be applying for the travel grant, so I can keep an eye out for their applications.
A second chance
Due to limited funding, we may not be able to award grants to all qualified students. If they aren’t awarded a grant at this time, we hope you will still encourage them to apply. Our application is free when submitted through the Common Application, the Coalition Application, or the QuestBridge National Match Application, so they have nothing to lose! We offer additional travel grants for our Spring Open Campus program for admitted students in April.


For more information and frequently asked questions, please review our travel grant webpage.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at 
travelgrant@wellesley.edu. Thanks for spreading the word!

veteran journalism teachers and award-winning local and national journalists on investigative stories that challenge students' critical thinking and research skills. Students will live on the BU campus and gain hands-on experience to benefit them in college and beyond.

For more information about our program, 
visit our website and read students' reflections on their experiences at the workshop last summer. I encourage you to share this information with your students and their families.
