Mapping the College Journey

Guidance and college counselors walk through the college-planning process with each student every step of the way. Starting in eighth grade, counselors begin aligning the academic path with each student's strengths and passions. Each year, goals and college to-do lists are updated through one-on-one meetings with students and parents.

Mount Paran supported a completely unique path of study for me and my interests in the arts, which allowed me to dive into my passions. I’m continually blown away by the intentionality and giving nature of the MPCS community that still goes out of its way to support me as an alum.
