College Counseling Program
The Office of College Counseling works with all Whitfield students and families in grade appropriate ways. The College Counseling program is rooted in the Habits of Mind & Heart. Each phase of the College Counseling program is designed to help students understand their strengths, interests, talents and needs in order to ensure the student identifies the post-graduation opportunity that is the best fit for him or her.
