Our College Counseling Office provides an informative and nurturing environment for the transition from high school to college. In addition to helping LaGrange Academy seniors identify and research potential colleges, our college counselor and registrar will also direct academic advising and course selection beginning in the spring of each academic year.
In addition to attending the annual PROBE Fair at LaGrange College, each year LaGrange Academy Upper School students visit various colleges. By participating in this trip each year of high school, students will have the opportunity to visit approximately 20 colleges before beginning the college application process. While on the campuses, students will attend information sessions and walking tours. The students will also eat on campus as often as they can in order to observe college life in a more informal way. These schools will allow the students to view a variety of different college environments. Even if a student is not currently considering one of these schools, the trip is still beneficial. By visiting many different schools, our goal is that by the time students apply to college they will have a better sense of what type of college they would like to attend and a feeling of what college life may be like.
Colleges we have visited in the past include:
|· Georgia Southern University||· Clemson University|
|· Georgia College and State University||· Sewanee: The University of the South|
|· Mercer University||· University of Alabama at Birmingham|
|· Armstrong State University||· Samford University|
|· Auburn University||· Birmingham Southern|
|· College of Charleston||· Vanderbilt University|
|· The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina||· Lipscomb University|
|· Presbyterian College||· Belmont University|
