The College Advising office at Geneva School of Boerne partners with parents to prayerfully guide each student through the college admissions process. The office provides the following services to our rhetoric school students and their families:
Throughout students’ time in the rhetoric school at Geneva School of Boerne, students and parents will be offered college forums. These night-time meetings are designed to educate students and parents on the various aspects of Rhetoric School academics and the college admissions process. Forums are held once a year in the spring for eighth though tenth grades, twice for juniors and once for seniors.
At the end of sophomore year, students receive the Geneva School of Boerne College Handbook to help guide them through the college process. The handbook contains timelines, best practices and tools to help guide students through the two-year process. Click the links below to view sample sections from the handbook.
Individual Family Meetings
During the spring of junior year, each family has the opportunity to meet individually with the College Advisor to discuss the student’s status and goals and to begin building a suitable college list for the student. The ideal list takes into consideration the student’s spiritual and personal development, academic standing and major/career aspirations as well as the family’s financial constraints.
The College Advising Office facilitates student interaction with colleges, including university representative visits to Geneva, our annual on-site College Fair and student visits to universities.
Each rhetoric student at Geneva receives his or her own account for Scoir, our college and career readiness portal. Scoir offers extensive tools for personal assessment and for career and college matching. The College Advising Office will load each student’s GPA and test scores into Scoir, which can be used for comparison to admissions data at colleges of interest.
