College Advising

COLLEGE ADVISING

Allison Academy is proud of our reputation with colleges and universities across the country, as well and in foreign countries. Our students are known for their strong academic preparation, distinctive talents, and outstanding citizenship. Throughout the year, college representatives are invited to visit our campus to meet with students to familiarize them with all aspects of college life. We maintain extensive files of universities and colleges for students to use in their search. However, the internet is our most useful search tool.

RESOURCES TO FACILITATE THE COLLEGE SEARCH

Allison Academy faculty members, working with Dr. Allison, assist students and parents in their search for the right college or university to help students meet their educational and career goals. Our teachers are available to advise students on an ongoing basis as they work closely with students and know their interests, talents, and potential. The teachers are the students’ strongest advocates and advise them through difficult decision making. Teachers also participate in writing letters of recommendation, reviewing required essays, and communicating with the college admissions department.

We have developed a wealth of resources and opportunities to assist students and parents in their college search including the following:

  • Researching colleges and universities
  • Individual college planning sessions
  • Completing applications
  • Writing personal statements and required essays
  • Preparing for standardized testing (SAT, ACT, or CPT)
  • Registering for standardized testing
  • Applying for financial aid


COLLEGE ENTRANCE TEST PREPARATION

Students are enrolled in a college entrance test program to prepare for their tests in their junior or senior high school years. This year we will be using highly recommended computer programs, along with a directed program of study using previously administered exams.

PARENT PARTICIPATION IN THE COLLEGE SEARCH

We welcome parent input and make every effort to keep parents informed though frequent communication via phone calls and emails. Please know that the entire Allison Academy staff is looking out for your students’ best interest!
