We want our All Saints students and families to feel informed, empowered, and actually enjoy the college search! Our goal is to help students identify and apply to colleges that offer opportunities and challenges that match their individual aspirations, needs, and interests.

Deciding which colleges are most appropriate can be tied to many factors: academic atmosphere, geographic location, diversity of the student body, athletic teams, arts offerings, extracurricular and internship opportunities, overseas studies programs, scholarships and financial aid. We provide extensive on-campus resources to help students sort through these considerations, so they may prepare thorough and compelling applications.
College Advising at All Saints centers on the particular abilities, needs, and desires of each student and family. Our goal is for each student to be admitted into colleges that both appeal to the student and also fit his or her academic, co-curricular, and personal profile. Ultimately, we believe that each student should control the self-evaluation, research, and application writing essential to good college selection.
In addition to maintaining day-to-day contact with students, ASA college advisors maintain contact with college admission representatives throughout the country by personally visiting college campuses and by attending professional conferences. Our annual college trip for ASA Juniors enables students to see college campuses and speak with college admission representatives.

Beginning in the Junior year, students and parents meet with ASA College Advisors in numerous one-on-one advising sessions and in small groups to frequently review standardized testing, applications, college interviews and visits, writing essays, and the financial aid process. During the Senior year, our College Advisors assist students in completing the application process and submitting all information in a timely manner.
At All Saints, we use the Naviance Family Connection software suite to help motivate students, learn about the range of college and career possibilities available, and connect their academic backgrounds to their ‘best fit’ colleges and to future success. The Naviance Scattergram charts plot specific college application results for ASA graduates; that data assists current ASA students to predict application outcomes for their own college applications. Once students reach Senior year, the Naviance software also tracks applications submitted and electronic transmission of supporting documents.
