College Counseling

Oakwood College Counseling’s motto, “Know thyself,” is no accident. OCC believes that the college search is fundamentally a journey in self-exploration. Students are guided to engage in meaningful self-reflection to discover more about their personal aspirations, expectations, needs, and priorities. 

With an emphasis on counseling and not placement, OCC educates students and families about the ever-changing landscape of college admissions and equips them with the information and tools necessary to critically evaluate colleges as potential academic, financial, personal, and social “fits” for students. Oakwood students put forth competitive, deliberate, and informed applications to colleges of interest.

OCC is carefully aligned with Oakwood School’s Educational Philosophy.
