College Counseling

At Ramona, the college preparation and selection process is a personal four-year journey of exploration, self discovery, hard work, and growth.

We will empower you to prepare for and select the college that's the best fit for you - your talents, interests, and career plans; and we make sure that you have the information and support you need for success.

We believe that college choice is a family decision, so we host parent meetings and evening events about admission and financial aid for each grade.

Ramona's two experienced full-time college counselors offer guidance in course selection, East and West Coast college tours, information about college fairs, on-campus meetings with college admission reps, and assistance with personal statements and Naviance, our college and career exploration software program.

Standardized testing is an important element of the application process as well, so all Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors prepare for and take the PSAT. PSAT preparation is also integrated into the curriculum.

In recent years, Ramona students have been accepted to more than 135 colleges and universities across the United States, each student finding the school that's the best fit for her.
