Welcome Guidance Counselors
You play an important role helping your students find the college that is the best fit for each of them. We are grateful for the collaboration that introduces bright young women to Agnes Scott.
Counselors often ask us "What kind of student will find her fit at Agnes Scott?" While our students come from across the country and around the world, Agnes Scott women have several shared values:
- They are self aware and committed to their personal development. The idea that college is a transformative experience is appealing to them.
- They are smart. They relish stretch assignments and are looking for a place that will be academically challenging but also supportive. They enjoy intellectual stimulation and learning for its own sake, in and out of the classroom.
- They are confident in their decisions and rely less on peer support when making decisions. Choosing a women's college is "outside the box" for many women, and those who choose it are able to see the unique benefits that they will find only at a women's college.
