Support at Compass
Compass High School offers individualized, supportive college advising to students and their families. Compass fosters a college-bound culture, and students are encouraged, even as freshmen, to consider college as a genuine opportunity for them. At the same time, students are made aware that college is only one of their options. Structured programs to help young adults make the transition to work life are equally valued. Whatever the student’s chosen path, the Compass college advising program can help.
Early in their high school career students and their families are invited to information nights where they learn about the transition to college from advisors as well as high school graduates. Students meet regularly with a college advisor and these meetings increase in frequency as students progress through the Compass program. They learn about updating psychological testing, and SAT and ACT testing accommodations. They receive guidance on how to approach the search and complete college applications. Compass’s college advising program also includes local campus visits and presentations by college representatives.
