College Counseling

Essays, Interviews, and Financial Aid 

Each spring, OLMA's guidance team works with college admissions professionals to host an essay writing boot camp for rising seniors with  a focus on the Common Application.  This is a great way for students to learn how to write an essay that's sure to impress.  Later in the year, juniors participate in an interview- and resume-writing seminar in preparation for Mock Interview Day.  College Guidance offers assistance to parents as well.  Throughout the year, OLMA guidance hosts class parent meetings and workshops to guide them through the college application process as well as provide pointers on  how to fill out the FAFSA.  

College Tours

When it comes to deciding which college or university is right, it’s all about fit. At OLMA we believe that the best way to get a feel for fit is by taking to the highway on college tours. 

College Fairs

College fairs are held throughout the year. OLMA will keep you updated on the ones located in the tri-state area. Admissions officers from hundreds of schools will be on hand to answer your questions.  

Instant Decision Day

Instant Decision Day is one of the most exciting days on campus each year as seniors have the opportunity to interview with select colleges and get an admissions decision on the spot.
