VMS College Counseling "Best Fit" Philosophy
The college counseling program at Vail Mountain School is based firmly on the principle that discovering "good matches" between students and post-secondary institutions is fundamental to the college admission process and to the health and well-being of the individual. The program's foundation is the concept that students are most likely to succeed at colleges most closely aligned with his/her individual capabilities and interests. Working in concert with both students and their families, a primary goal is to identify a number of appropriate matches for each student and to provide support and assistance in the application and decision-making processes.
It is Vail Mountain School's driving philosophy that colleges best suited for our students are the ones that will nurture their academic and social maturation.
I felt very well prepared for college, in fact I found that my freshman year in college was less challenging academically than my senior year at VMS. Alumna ‘93
