A Midland education provides students with a strong foundation – as learners and resourceful citizens – to get a good education anywhere. Ultimately, all students are responsible for their own education. The process of applying to college tests their readiness to take on this responsibility, and they must take ownership of the process. Midland’s college counseling program provides skillful support for this individualized journey by matching our graduates with colleges, universities, and gap year programs well-suited to each student’s individual interests, plans, talents, skill sets, and needs.
Midland often transforms the lives of young people and, in doing so, prepares them for college, where they will have a transformational experience of a different nature. Ideally, the college search process is also transformational, in that it forces students to examine themselves and to identify what they want from life and from their education. If students can truly understand who they are and what they want, then finding the right college becomes significantly less complicated.
The goal of Midland’s college counseling office is to provide the tools, resources, and support that will enable students to navigate this milestone, each step of the way. Midland sets the bar high for education and life beyond Midland. The transformational experience of applying to college, while serving Midland’s purpose of college preparation, ultimately helps prepare students for life.
