College Counseling

We believe there is an appropriate college for each unique individual who graduates from Antilles. The philosophy that guides our practice is captured in the phrase, “Finding a College That Fits.”

College Counseling

College counseling offers individual guidance and information to students and parents, assisting them with the college application and selection process.

College counseling may begin informally when a parent or student asks for guidance, even if the child in question is not yet in Upper School. In some cases, that first encounter may come because of attending a college night program; in other cases, it happens when parents call or email the college counselor or when a student asks questions of an advisor, teacher, or guidance counselor. In addition to these interactions, the formal college counseling program begins in earnest in the fall of junior year, when juniors sit for the PSAT exam and their results come back, and later, when the college counselor begins meeting with the junior class. College Workshop courses commence in second semester of the junior year and continue through the first semester of senior year, after which individual meetings with seniors and their parent/s may take place right up until a matriculation deposit is made in May of the graduating year.

Where Students are Accepted & Attending

College Placement Counseling

Because Antilles School is a college preparatory school, we assume that all students intend to pursue higher education after graduation. The role of the College Counselor at Antilles School is to help each student and family navigate the college admission process in search of the best possible “fit” between the individual and the higher education institution.

Once in Upper School, students begin to hear regularly from the College Placement Counselor during the evening program for 9th grade and 10th grade parents and students as well as in individual college counseling sessions which start to take place during the second semester of 11th grade and continue into the first semester of 12th grade. Students and parents in grades 9 through 12 are commonly made aware of college fairs, individual visits from college admission representatives as well as evening programs hosted by Antilles. The College Placement Counselor is a resource to all students and parents, and anyone with questions or concerns should be sure to email Dr. Isabel M. Borrás Marín at iborras@antilles.vi or call her at 776-1600 x3702.
