College Counseling

Our approach is not only about "getting in," but getting it right.

We love the college admissions process because we love finding the right fit for each of our students. The opportunity to know each student on a highly individualized level through classwork, athletics, performance, and volunteering not only means that we can offer recommendations that speak to multiple dimensions of each student, but that we understand what each student is seeking from a college experience.

For our teachers, writing college recommendations comes effortlessly because they know each student on multiple levels: as a learner, a creator, a community member, and a person. We often hear that recommendations from Waldorf schools are unlike any other in their depth and richness, a noteworthy reflection in that the teacher recommendation is an increasingly important way to distinguish students in a highly competitive landscape.

Maine Coast students are successful college applicants because they are confident engaging in intellectual discussion, aware of their own learning styles, and comfortable relating to adults. This combination is critical because it adds up to students who know what they’re looking for and how to find it. We believe the college admissions process is a two-way street: Our approach is not only about “getting in”, but getting it right. Our College Counselor supports seniors and their families in the selection & application process.
