College Counseling

For our students, the Miller School of Albemarle college counseling process begins in Grade 10 and continues all the way through to the spring semester of Grade 12, when our seniors learn of their college acceptances. Grade 11 is a particularly important year in the college counseling process as our juniors focus on taking their SAT exams and on narrowing the list of college and universities which interest them. Each year, the School updates its College Counseling Handbook and seeks to provide a maximum level of assistance to our students and their parents.  This assistance also includes the coordination of both on-campus visits from college representatives (see the visitation schedule below) and off-campus trips that give both day and boarding students the opportunity to attend open houses and discovery days at colleges throughout Virginia.

Miller School of Albemarle graduates are accepted into a grand array of colleges and universities. In the past four years, MSA graduates have entered Virginia institutions including the College of William and Mary, Hampden-Sydney College, James Madison University, the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Washington & Lee University, as well as out-of-state colleges and universities including Duke University, East Carolina University, Emory University, Sewanee: The University of the South, University of North Carolina, UCLA, Wake Forest University, University of Washington, and Yale University.

A young person who wishes to receive an excellent education can do so at literally hundreds of colleges and universities in the United States. This being the case, the MSA College Placement Office is committed to assisting each of our students in selecting the college that is best for him or her. For some students, this may be a large university in an urban setting. For other students, the best choice may be a small college in a rural setting. Matching the individual personality of a senior with the collective culture of a college is absolutely essential to laying the groundwork for a happy and productive higher education experience. At the Miller School of Albemarle, our College Placement Office is committed to this goal.
