At Lausanne, we strive to know each student and their family in a way that helps lessen the stress and worry during what has become a very high-stress process. Upper School students and parents meet 1-on-1 with a college advisor every year to help ensure families understand the college admissions process and the importance of academic performance throughout high school. Students and parents are also encouraged to reach out to the college advising office with any questions about the college application process through all of their years at Lausanne.
Throughout the school year, students continue to receive guidance on their academic journey and participate in mock interview sessions with college representatives and Lausanne alumni. Resume writing workshops, career exploration sessions, and essay brainstorming workshops led by college counseling help students with the application process. Weekly meetings focused on college advising begin in the spring, along with optional trips to college campuses during Spring Break. With representatives from over 130 different colleges and universities visiting Lausanne annually, students have the opportunity to form their own vision for life after Lausanne.
Seniors also attend the College Application Bootcamp held in the fall to learn tips and best practices for filling out the applications. The students participate in weekly group college advising sessions in the fall during advisory and prepare for college and scholarship interviews by participating in individualized mock interview sessions.
The Lausanne College Advising plan culminates in the student choosing the right fit school for each student from the many admissions offers they receive.
