College Counseling

A launchpad for success in your journey ahead

We believe the process of applying for college is one of positive self-discovery. We help you assess your individual abilities, talents, interests and aspirations, and then we provide the knowledge, guidance and support for you to identify and seek college admission.

Each year, 100 percent of Western Reserve Academy graduates gain acceptance into top colleges and universities that are carefully matched with their skills and ambitions. Our College Counseling Office works closely with you, as well as your parents, to help you navigate the application process and achieve your goals.

WRA has long been a recognized leader in student advocacy in the college process, a fact highlighted by our unique committee-written letters of recommendation, emphasizing your personal strengths, accomplishments and development during your time at Reserve.
