College Spotlight: The College of Wooster
Looking for a unique one-on-one learning experience? The College of Wooster may be for you. Located in Wooster, Ohio (an hour south of Cleveland and ninety minutes northeast of Columbus) this Division III school has a liberal arts tradition that dates from its founding in 1866. All seniors participate in an independent study project of their choosing, culminating with the Wooster tradition of an I.S. Parade where all Seniors march and turn in their papers followed by a campus celebration. A private school set on a beautiful campus in a small town (Wooster’s population is 26,000), Wooster is a great pick for the student who really knows themselves and is interested in becoming involved with their school community.

Don’t Let Summer Pass You By!
While many think of the summer as a time to relax, hit the beach and do anything but something academic, summer is the best time to explore potential academic majors and careers. You can learn more about this at your local library. Take advantage of the down time to up your game. You will be glad you did.

"College Search Navigators did a wonderful job assisting both my daughters with the college admissions process. They really absorbed who my girls were as unique individuals and helped them in articulating this to their target colleges. Both of my daughters have had marvelous experiences at schools that are perfect for them. "Frances O., mother of Beth Anne and Claire, Class of 2008,
