College Counseling

Helping students find a great fit.

Wellington offers a college counseling, rather than a college placement, program. The difference is important. Our College Counseling program is distinctive in its empowerment of students to search for, identify, and enroll in colleges that are strong fits based on their individual passions and circumstances.
