We work with each student individually to find the right college for the student's goals.
When a student enters BFA, one of the first things we do is develop a plan for graduation. In concert with the student's advisor, 和 the parents, our college counselors review all prior transcripts to develop a plan for each student.
Once the plan is finalized, the academic advisor works with the student to make a timeline for completing all graduation requirements. For a full-year student, this will include developing semester work plans for fall and spring, then month-by-month and week-by-week plans. Students see that the work they do each day 和 each week moves them closer to their graduation goal.
BFA's college counselors meet with each student individually to determine his or her interests, talents, and career goals in order to guide the student in the college selection process. In addition to the vast amount of information available on the internet, using online search engines specifically geared to colleges 和 college websites, we also use NAVIANCE, an online system integrating college 和 career prep with college application organization.
These resources are complemented by visits from college representatives to BFA and our students' attendance at college fairs 和 to individual campuses of schools that interest them.
At the 10th grade level, students take the 预行为, the pre-法案 college placement test. The PLAN is a good diagnostic tool in that it helps identify any areas of weakness that need to be addressed in the junior 和 senior years.
At the 11th grade level, we also administer the PSAT
