College Guidance

Cheryl Wassall, our academic advisor, works individually with each high school student throughout his or her high school years to provide guidance along the academic journey. Academic advisement begins before the start of the freshman year when each student meets with Mrs. Wassall to formulate a four-year plan of study. This plan takes into account the student’s individual abilities, academic goals, and future plans. She continues to check in frequently, carefully monitoring progress and offering advice and guidance on necessary adjustments to the plan.

Additionally, Mrs. Wassall is a very experienced guide through the often daunting world of college admissions. She provides expert advice on ACT and SAT test-taking strategies, helps students with their college applications, and consults with parents and students on securing of financial aid.

As part of their plan of study, students have the option to enroll in concurrent college classes in their junior and senior year, which enables them to earn college credit while fulfilling their high school graduation requirements.

“We couldn’t have managed the college admissions process without Mrs. Wassall. Her wealth of knowledge in guiding us to the courses Michael needed in high school to pursue his dreams in college was invaluable. We love her and so appreciate everything about her—every school needs one of her, for sure!” –Tanya, parent of MVC alumnus

“Doing practice interviews with Mrs. Wassall was one of the most beneficial ways that she helped me through the college application process. She was also a very direct communicator and did a good job at consolidating information for me and making things easy to understand.” --Hannah, MVC alumna
